Dewey Game: Mrs. Lodge is a library teacher in an elementary school. She loves to see her students be independent learners in the library. Students in her library check out their own books and are working hard to find books they want using call numbers. Mrs. Lodge wanted a fun way for students to practice putting books in order so they can better understand call numbers. She asked Mr. Lodge, a web developer, to help her make a game for her students and together they created Shelver.
