Junior Library – old version








Ms. Colleen Williams is the teacher librarian of our Junior Library. The Junior Library is mainly for students from Grade 3 to Grade 6.



During our Spring into Reading celebration, students in grades 3 to 6 have been learning to write and post their own book reviews onto our library’s online catalogue. It’s easy! Simply log in to Destiny using your student number and First Class password, search the title you want to review, click on the Reviews tab, and then on Add Review. You can give the book a star rating from one to five if you like. Start by writing a brief introduction to the story (don’t give away the ending!), and then explain your star rating by saying what you liked (or didn’t like) about the book.  Before clicking on the Save button, be sure to check your spelling and punctuation. Below are some examples of reviews written by students over the past few weeks:

Matilda is a book filled with imagery language, unimaginable endings, and most of all Matilda is a book that is so interesting that you will resist putting it down. This book is about a little girl named Matilda going through a life with parents that don’t care about her and a headmistress that hate children. Do you think Matilda would manage to stop this? Would Matilda changed her own life and be loved? Would she do tricks to annoy the people who annoy her? Read the book to find out. I loved this book and I know you will too!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

5.0 stars5.0 stars5.0 stars5.0 stars5.0 starsFebruary 16, 2011 The Deathly Hallows is the most exciting book of all 7 of the Harry Potter series. It is full of action and adventure, bringing you to read on and on, while Harry, Hermione and Ron are running not only trying not to get caught by the Death Eaters, but are finding Horcruxes to stop Voldemort from being immortal. Since the Wizarding World has become darker and scarier, they go through lots of danger bringing the reader through exciting anxiousness. If you like adventure and fantasy, you will love this book.

The 4th book in a series of adventure, battle, Chinese warfare, and history, this is series is about 6 children with extreme abilities to master their own type of kungfu style, mimicking animals. The main character in this book is Hok, which means crane in English, some words are wrote in chinese “Ping Yin” so it may be a bit confusing. Ying (eagle) which was one of the 6, betrayed the other five and made himself general. In this book he is trapped because he has been deceived by his 2nd man, TongLong (mantis). He got tricked and later becomes allies with Hok(crane), Malao(monkey), Fu(tiger), Seh(snake), and Long(dragon). It would be better if you read the other books in the series first, because the story would make more sense. I also recommend you to search the Chinese words if you don’t know how to read Chinese “Ping Yin”. I give this 5 stars as it’s a page flipper and is filled with action pack fights with foreigners(ghost people) with big noses, or now called the “white people.
