|My cat Starfire with Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes|
My selection was the 2005 medal winner, Kitten’s First Full Moon, written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes (Greenwillow Books/HarperCollinsPublishers). And a photo of Starfire wasn’t specifically part of the assignment, but I couldn’t resist propping the book in front of her and including her in a photo of the book that I was required to post with my response for the class.

This Medieval-style hood is assembled from knit swatches from The Web-sters in Ashland, Oregon. Originally used in a banner for the store’s entry in this year’s Independence Day parade, I salvaged nearly all of the swatches plus the streamers that hung from my banner.

One of the biggest challenges regarding censorship in school libraries is that the urge to censor has its origin in a human instinct that has benefited our survival.
New to the timeline at Yarn Bombing @ Your Library, “Ninja Knitters” yarnbombed the Fairfield Woods Branch Library in Fairfield, Conn., to draw attention to the library’s 45th anniversary, which begins this month. Local media published a photo and press release submitted by the group.
