Recommended Book of the Month
The Strongest Man This Side of Cremona by Georgia Graham.
The Author Georgia Graham, was born and raised in Calgary and attended the Alberta College of Art.
Matthew’s dad is the strongest man this side of Cremona. He can lift Matthew over fences, and when he shouts at the cows, they scatter. But while helping repair a fence on their dairy farm, Matthew encounters something stronger than his dad: a tornado sweeping a path of devastation across the prairie. Thanks to his dad’s quick thinking, they survive the tornado. But it has left Matthew shaken, and their beautiful farm has been damaged almost beyond recognition. While friends gather to help rebuild, Matthew discovers that the love he and his father share must be the strongest thing of all.
We have an extensive collection of picture books, novels, nonfiction, graphic and levelled readers for students and staff to enjoy. There is also a section of reference materials for all, and a professional library for staff. We are working towards expanding our collection of novels and picture books on CD’s as well.

At Colonel Walker School, each class gets library time once per week. During this time, Mrs. Potts reads stories, and students have the opportunity to check out resources for the week. Kindergarten is permitted one book per week, while grades 1-6 take two items plus a magazine.
