Book Character Costume Party

March is Book Month! Our school librarian threw a Book Character Costume Party this month to celebrate. I dressed as Ms. Franny Block, the librarian of the Herman W. Block Memorial Library, in the book Because of Winn Dixie. This is Jae Gyung, dressed as Captain Hook. I tutor Jae Gyung after school two times a week in English and enjoy working with her very much.

Here is a photo of the elementary teachers who dressed up for the costume party. On the left is the host of this fabulous party, Mrs. Dax. She came dressed as the caterpillar in Eric Carle's book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Other teacher costumes included Amelia Bedilia, Minnie Mouse, and the Cat in the Hat!

After the students showed off their costumes, we ate a long caterpillar cake in honor of Eric Carle's 80th birthday. That's a lot of candles!
