Did you know there are other students out there who have something to tell you about Altoona Baboona, or Aliens for Lunch? It may be that the best way for you to find out if you really want to read a book is to learn about it from another kid. The Spaghetti Book Club is a great site for you. It is the largest site of book reviews written and illustrated by kids, for kids. You can look up book reviews by title, author, or kid reviewers in their state/school. Teachers will be interested in checking out the site too, which explains this literacy program that can help develop students reading and writing skills.

Ever since we've had hold music on our telephone system, it seems we've been committed to letting people know what we're playing. The picture above is from our Fugitive Fact File (more on that in a coming post) and shows that we kept a record of which songs played over the phone system.
For our present phone system, we've loaded our MP3 player with select Creative Commons-licensed jazz and other recordings from the Internet Archive:
- Fred Baty — Crepusculum — Sky Diaries EP
- top-40.org — Summer Time [top12]
- Carl Jasper Hoffman (October 27, 2004)
- Marcos Oliva And Free Bossa Jazz Trio
- Eric Bednarz — Aicha
