That's a fact, Jack!

Who doesn't love Uncle Si Robertson and his many Si-isms?  If you're not familiar with Duck Dynasty, you need to know that Uncle Si often says, "that's a fact, Jack!"  I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to display non-fiction books in the library, so I recently put these pictures of Si with his famous words of wisdom out on display with some non-fiction books.  Some of the books were about Duck Dynasty-related topics such as hunting, fishing, and animals.  Others were just non-fiction books that I thought would interest the kids but may not be titles that are highly circulated.

The books FLEW off this display.  We had to restock the display at least once a day while we had it up.  It sparked a lot of discussion among the students, and got a lot of attention.  Just what I wanted!

Fans of the show may catch my little joke in the pictures below: I put a book about beavers next to one of the signs. (The Robertsons have a severe dislike for beavers, who cause problems in the rivers where they like to fish.)

  1. My kids are crazy for Duck Dynasty. Great job incorporating something you students enjoy and are drawn to! Thanks for the idea!
