About Ms. Judi

My name is Judi Stewart.  I graduated in 1994 from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.  I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Language Arts in 1996 from the University of Mississippi.  I received my Library Media National Board Certification in 2018. 

    I taught second grade for sixteen years before making the move to the library.  This is my 26th year of teaching.   I am blessed to be a part of the LPS family. 

    My daughter, Merrill, is a junior at Mississippi State University.  She is majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing.   She enjoys taking care of the animals on my parent's farm, The Office, and hanging out with her friends.  My son, William, is a freshman at Northwest Mississippi Community College.  William will be playing football for the Rangers!   He loves cooking, fishing, and video and music production. 

     I am a huge Mississippi State Bulldog fan!  Nothing makes me happier than watching my Dawgs play.  You will find me in the stands for each and every game cheering my team to victory.  I also am a avid reader!  I love to discover new authors to enjoy.  Not only do I read books written for someone as old as I am, I love to discover new books for my LPS kiddos!  My prayer is that they will develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime!

August Author of the Month: Kevin Henkes
Kevin Henkes

Kevin Henkes was born in 1960 in Racine, Wisconsin. Throughout his childhood, he and his family visited the local public library, making an important ritual out of selecting and carrying home books. Inspired by such illustrators as Crockett Johnson and Garth Williams, Henkes decided at an early age that he would be an artist, and enjoyed frequent visits to the nearby art museum. It was a high school teacher's encouragement of his writing, however, that gave Henkes the idea for his future career.

Henkes' first picture book, drafted while he was still in high school, was accepted for publication when Henkes was just 19, an art major at the University of Wisconsin. Since then, he has worked steadily, writing and illustrating more than 15 picture books that have won him a devoted audience as well as considerable critical acclaim. Owen was named a Caldecott Honor Book, one of many awards and citations Henkes has received. In 2004, Henkes won another Newbery Honor for Olive's Ocean. In addition to his self-illustrated picture books, Henkes has written picture books that others have illustrated, and a number of novels for young readers. He lives with his wife in Madison, Wisconsin.

Wemberly

Wemberly worried about spilling her juice, about shrinking in the bathtub, even about snakes in the radiator. She worried morning, noon, and night. "Worry, worry, worry," her family said. "Too much worry." And Wemberly worried about one thing most of all: her first day of school. But when she meets a fellow worrywart in her class, Wemberly realizes that school is too much fun to waste time worrying! 

 

What are some things you worry about?  Write a story or draw a picture of what you were worried about as you begin a new school year.
