Chad Morris grew up wanting to become a professional basketball player or a rock star. (Inspired by Animal from The Muppets, he has been banging on drums since he was eight years old). Neither of those plans quite planed out. After high school, he left the Rocky Mountains to live in Brazil for a few years then returned home to write and perform sketch comedy while going to college. He graduated from BYU with a couple of degrees and became a teacher and a curriculum writer.
Chad would love to teach at Craggbridge Academy. Unlike Oscar Craggbridge, he hasn’t really invented anything, though his young son once sketched out blueprints for a machine that would turn celery into cookies.
The 2014 featured book is Miss Moore Thought Otherwise by Jan Pinborough. We are in for a treat as we learn all about Anne Carroll Moore and her love of children and books. This is the true story of how Miss Moore created the first children’s room at the New York Public Library, a bright, warm room filled with artwork, window seats, and most important of all, borrowing privileges to the world’s best children’s books in many different languages. She did this while many felt that children did not belong in libraries.
