"Our Librarian Won't Tell Us Anything" is Me! Feb 21, 2007
Several years ago I met Toni Buzzeo on an airport shuttle at a conference in Kansas City.The van was full of Teacher-Librarians swapping stories, and after I shared mine, from the front of the van came...."there's a picture book in that". Fast forward to Pittsburg, October 2005 when Toni and I met again and I reminded her about her comment. The rest as they say, is history! There really is a Liberty Elementary, a Carmen character and me, the Real Mrs. Skorupski! I hope many of my Teacher-Librarian colleagues enjoy sharing Toni's book with their students! My students did! I can't wait to see the second in the series "Fire Up with Reading". The Real Mrs. Skorupski
A Must Have for All Librarians or Teachers Feb 11, 2007
What a fantastic book. This book is a wonderful way to help teachers and librarians to help children in learning to become independent library users. The book delivers the message in a simple and cheerful manner. The story is great for students beginning a research project, learning to use the online card catalog or searching for books to meet their individual needs and interests. This book makes a wonderful read aloud as well as a fantastic book for kids to read on their own. After reading this book students will want to become "A library success story".
The Best Librarian Feb 9, 2007
I love this librarian. She runs one smooth operation and if I were a kid who needed to do a project, I would go find Mrs. Skorupski. Her data projector works. She is never flustered. When she meets a new fourth grader, she says, I love fourth graders. Students will love her back and tackle their research problems with more skills because of meeting her.

Way to go, Mrs. Skorupski!
This book challenges children to discover libraries and become capable, independent learners. In a cheerful manner with vibrant illustrations (love the spider earrings on Mrs. Skorupski!), the storyline empowers children on their quest for knowledge within a library setting.
This book is ideal to use at the onset of a research project with students within classrooms or within a library setting, as a read aloud, or to offer to children for leisure reading.
Sachiko Yoshikawa's illustrations are the perfect compliment to the lighthearted yet meaningful message.
Become a Library Sucess Story! Feb 5, 2007
Like all good teachers and media specialists, Mrs. Skorupski won't tell her students anything, but she will teach them how to find answers on their own.
Our Librarian Won't Tell Us Anything! by Toni Buzzeo is a delightful book with strong characters, and the bright, lively art by Sachiko Yoshikawa adds even more zest to this empowering story. Highly recommended.
