Summer is almost over and school is just around the corner.
I'd like to invite everyone to stop by the library and take a look at the pictures in the "One World, Many Stories" scrapbook created by Christy.
Then spend a little more time looking through the past summer reading program scrapbooks. They can be found on the fourth shelf of the parent's section in the children's department.
While you're at the library be sure to check out the new books in the children, juvenile, and young adult sections. Here are a few books that were a hit this summer.
They say laughter is the best medicine for whatever ails you. Tickle the Duck is the perfect book for making anyone laugh. In this hilarious touch-and-feel book, a cranky duck dares children to tickle his soft stomach, his hairy armpit, his rubbery foot-and reacts uproariously each time. This treasure of interactive fun is sure to engage parents and children for hours of tickling and giggling.
Did you see that duck? What duck? You mean that rabbit? Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld is a smart, simple story that will make readers of all ages eager to take a side, and makes it easy to agree on at least one thing: reading it again.
Check out the children's department for other great reads!
Some new series were added to our juvenile department. "Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventure" series capitalizes on the extremely popular (and more than 40-year-old) character created by Jeff Brown. Pennypacker's new travel-themed series features the same tongue-in-cheek humor and earnest, goody-two-shoes sensibility of the original. The boys and girls had fun doing the Flat Stanley Scavenger Hunt for our summer reading program.
Conspiracy 365 is a fast-moving twelve-volume crime thriller series from a bestselling Australian author, Gabrielle Lord. A fifteen year old boy, Cal, is chased down the street by a crazed man with a deadly warning. Cal is forced into a life on the run and finds himself hunted by ruthless criminals and the police. He has 365 days to solve the mystery or else.
Along for the Ride and Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen were added to the Young Adult section. The characters, in true Dessen style, are never flat, and are rarely predictable. Just when you think you know exactly what to expect from a character, they surprise you. So jump on the bike and enjoy the ride.
The Angel Experiment by James Patterson and Book 2 of the Kane's Chronicles were also added to our young adult section.
These are just a few of our new books. So stop by and see what other new reads we have.
