Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast Day!

Today was Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast Day!

Well, actually, this week was Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast Week at my school, and in my school district.  We were so excited for the release of Josh Funk's new picture book...but unfortunately our school was not in session yet on September 1.  So, along with my teacher-librarian colleagues, Katie Lawrence and Carrie Davies, we decided to make September 25 our special celebration day!

Preparation started earlier in the week with ALL students watching the book trailer, learning a little about author, Josh Funk and sharing the book.

Our morning started out with me making breakfast for the staff.  It was a fun way to start a Friday morning!

Our Food Service got involved, also.  Today's lunch choices were, of course, PANCAKES and FRENCH TOAST!  During lunch Josh sent us a video message that we could watch while we were eating!

We also had some fun giveaways.  Thank you to Sterling Books (Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast swag) and McDonalds, Anna's House and International House of Pancakes (free breakfasts and giftcards) for donating things for our drawings!

After lunch, the second graders came back to the library for a Skype visit with Josh!  He was AWESOME!

We ended our day with our final results being announced from lunch!

Sir French Toast=95                               Lady Pancake=176

And, of course, someone had to win the book!

It was a great day!!!!
