In actuality, it is my simple way to keep track of which books are mine from my home library. Moffat's little stickers help me keep track and also remind others when they borrow a book, who it belongs to.
This afternoon (as I am trying to escape the afternoon heat!), I am working on labeling the GIANT pile of new kids' picture books from my students last year. My little "Moffat approved" labels came in the mail and I am very busy. I was quite thrilled at the end of the year, when one of the parents had taken it upon herself to collect money and purchase books off my bottomless Amazon wish list. My book collection is one of my favorite things and it is always growing. My father recently inquired if I have all of them catalogued and the answer is no. I keep waiting for him to come over and use his excellent organization skills to help me out!
Mostly, this collection brings me huge joy because of the doors it opens for my students. I love the new worlds, people, events and places that these books bring. After all, it's all about the story!
