"Designing Girls" Create Rooms for their American Girl Dolls!

This Saturday, 10 creative girls gathered at the library with Miss Sarah and Miss Sue Olsen to design rooms for their favorite American Girl dolls.  We had a blast! Presented with plain, white tri-fold boards, the girls got right to work transforming them with paper, fabric, and lots of bric-a-brac.  Although they all started out the same, by the time we were through, every one was a unique reflection of the girl that created it.  See the slide show at the left to see all of the amazing "rooms" that we made!

And the winner is...

Well, I guess it should come as no surprise that the most votes for "favorite book (or series)" were cast for (drum roll....) Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling !! This series continues to enchant young and old alike.  However, our ballot box was stuffed with over 60 votes (!), and many other books were mentioned.  Also receiving multiple votes were:
Don't Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems, The Warrior's series by Erin Hunter, TinTin by Herge, Ninjago books, Charlotte's Web by E.B. White, and the Rainbow Fairies series by Daisy Meadows.

 Whatever book you voted for, we are so glad that you love reading :-)
