Wiley library media specialist Mrs. Skorupski is back in her third book.  This time, she's mixing it up with a Dewey Decimal treasure hunt! 
 
Fourth grade twins Hugh and Louis join forces to plan the treasure hunt with their classmates in Mr. Dickinson's class. When it's all prepared, Carmen Rosa Peña's little sister Frieda and her second-grade classmates compete against other teams to see who can find the most Dewey objects and corresponding books in the time allotted. As readers root for Frieda to win the hunt, they will be treated to an exciting tour of the Dewey numbers and sections along the way. 
 
For those who admire Mrs. Skorupski's style and wardrobe, she doesn't disappoint; this time she's decked out in rhinestone Dewey numbers from her earrings to her shoes and dons a royal purple Dewey decimal system cape!
Meet Mrs. Skorupski, the librarian who loves Dewey!

On Monday, Mrs. Skorupski swooped over to greet my class at the library door.

"Hello Hugh Abernathy," she said. "So, you're line leader today?"

She pointed me toward the 'Knowledge Nest.' The light glinted off her rhinestone earrings.  The left one spelled out 000.  The right spelled 900.

My twin brother Louis nudged me. "Check out her shoes."

More rhinestone numbers! They were also pinned to her collar, holding her sweater closed, and decorating a ring on each hand.  Ten numbers in all.

“Sachiko Yoshikawa's exciting colorful illustrations keep the tempo up and pace racing. Who says libraries are boring? All the best books are there! "The Great Dewey Hunt" is a vibrant tool to unlock library exploration skills in elementary age students.” —Midwest Book Review

“Sporting a blond ponytail, lime green jacket, and oversized glasses, Mrs. Skorupski is the total opposite of the old fashioned, stereotyped librarian. The sub plot cleverly teaches about the importance of returning books to their proper places on the shelves. A useful handout comes with the book and provides step-by-step instructions for duplicating the lessons depicted in the story. Purchase this delightful book and turn students on to learning to find their way around the nonfiction area of the library.” —Sylvia Firth, Children's LiteratureTHE_GREAT_DEWEY_HUNT__A_MRS._SKORUPSKI_STORY_files/realmrs.skorupski.pdf
