Today we read Lizzie Learns About Lying by Utah author Gary Hogg and The Librarian Who Measured the Earth by Kathryn Lasky and illustrated by Utah illustrator Kevin Hawkes.
During Lizzie Learns About Lying a book published in Utah, Miss Sherry talked about lying. The kids played 2 Truths and a Lie. Miss Sherry also talked about if it is ever ok to lie. Is there ever a situation where lying is ok?
The Librarian Who Measured The Earth has an illustrator from Utah, but this particular book was great because Miss Sherry had just returned from Egypt. Miss Sherry at The Library of Alexandria

- You can’t go out to see people. You want to keep your child indoors. But you want them to keep in contact. One idea might be to encourage your child to write letters to their friends, relatives and family members. This allows them to practice their writing skills and gives them a chance to stay in contact with people.

“The Allosaurus is Utah’s very own state fossil. This large carnivorous dinosaur lived during the Late Jurassic Period. The Allosaurus, which means “different lizard,” was discovered in 1877, and scientists were surprised by its hollow vertebrae. The hollow bones would have been lighter, allowing this dino to move faster. Modern birds have similar bones.”
