Every Monday, we’ll see what book Dewey is reading! Over the summer, all Dewey’s books will be nonfiction science books in honor of the Fizz Boom Read Summer Reading Program! And since Dewey is named in honor of Melville Dewey, the creator of the Dewey Decimal System of Classification, we will learn a bit about how the Dewey Decimal System works, too!

So, what’s Dewey reading today…?


Dewey’s reading Plant Secrets by Emily Goodman! This book’s call number is J 580 Goodman. Librarians read the call number as J five eighty (not five hundred eighty). The number 580 tells us that this book is about plants. This book can contain information about different types of plants including leafy plants and flowers.
