RE: thinking outside the box… Artist Chris Cobb talked Adobe Bookshop in San Francisco (naturally) into allowing him to reclassify their 20,000 books by color, for one week. So the next time a kid comes in asked, “You know that green book I had last week?”, you’ll have a mental image of where to look. Some amazing pictures here, and an interview here.
This has nothing to do with curriculum, but it was too wonderfully strange not too share. It’s stuff librarians’ dreams/nightmares are made of.
