Reading Nooks for Kids

It's an adorable selection of reading spaces for kids.

 It brought back memories of me hiding in my closet with pillows and blankets and a book light. That was my nook and I loved it. I had a bookshelf in my closet, so obviously, that was the ideal reading space, right? (I eventually moved up to a bean bag chair in the corner of my bedroom. I had a small closet and as I grew, I needed more leg room. *smiles*)

Did you have a favorite reading nook as a kid? 

Under the bed or desk? 

In a treehouse? 

I'd love to hear about your favorite spaces. :)

My newest instruction session prop

I came across this someeecard created by Grammar Girl:


The image was created to go along with her recent "How Do You Tell If Something is True" episode. (It's an episode that instruction librarians will surely enjoy!)

When I saw the image above I immediately thought that it would be a great tool for a future library instruction session.  It can be placed on an overhead and then students can be asked for their comments on it. If I predict correctly, then I believe it will be a great segway to discussion about the Web vs library databases as well as evaluation of sources. 

What other tools do you use to have students start the conversation about information literacy topics?
