Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom is a very good book. It's about these two girls named Violet, Rose, and their mother. Her mom has been recently divorced from her husband, who is a huge movie producer. He has gone away to LA, with a new girlfriend. They had twins together. Now her Mother has been dating men off of a online dating service. None of the men, so far, are very nice, until she meets a guy named "Dudley Weiner". Violet hates him. She tries to break them up. This book is full of practical jokes, underwear flushing and George Clooney.
I majorly recommend this book to anyone!

December has been a busy month at the Florence Meares Library. Read and Relax is well underway and students have been escaping the cold on Fridays during 2nd Break on Fridays. Our Battle of the Books teams have started training for our spring competitions. A huge thank you to Ms. Hammill and Ms. Porter who make Battle of the Books happen at Florence Meares. Our Grade 4 students from Ms. Markuci, Ms. Ghai, and Ms. Decker-Such's classes have been enjoying creating video Book Trailers about a variety of pictures books. Stay tuned to the F.M. Library website for their completed videos.
