This is show number 7, and today we're looking for great books at the Lost and Found!

On today's show, Lil' Bucket is going to help me out again, because she has chosen the books by making her own text to text connections.

In fact, she's even made a text to music connection, because she knew exactly what song we should play for the show! We'll hear another great song by Maine artist, Sammie Haynes, which is all about lost and found things!

Prof. Z's back and he's going to tell us all about two reading strategies that good readers do to find things.

So, get out your compass! Get out your map! Get out your metal detector and come find your way to a couple of great books brought to you by Lil' Bucket.

We've got a great show today, with a lot of fun included, because today, we're hanging out with Sam Krupnik!

I'm going to have help from Lil' Bucket and we're going to give you a snapshot of four different books by Lois Lowry, about Sam Krupnik. Our goal is to get you interested, excited, and hooked on these books, so you go out and get them from your Library.

I'm going to talk about Point of View today and we'll hear a song by another Sam - Maine artist, Sammie Haynes, all about taking journeys!

So, grab your coat, come with us to Cambridge, Massachusetts in the USA to where the Krupnik family lives, and meet our good buddy, Sam!
