What Lies Upon Your Head? A Hat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A hat is more than just something that lies upon your head. A hat can be many things.  

 

Don't Worry, Douglas!  by David Melling.

Has Your Heart Been Captured By Siku?

Siku, the baby polar bear in Denmark, has stolen hearts around the world.  Both children and adults alike can not get enough of this cute little cub. 

So, I thought it would be a great opportunity to highlight a few of the books you can check out about polar bears. 

Share in the Delight of an American Tradition

 

During storytime this morning, several young friends informed me that they would be celebrating Thanksgiving this week.  I asked them what their plans were, and they quickly noted that they were going to watch "the parade!"

 National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month is celebrated each November.  Would you like to know more about Native American histories and cultures?  Visit the library!  There are many items here at the library and also online that will support a deeper understanding of the American who first graced this land. Ask a librarian, they would love to assist you in your discoveries.
 

No Thanksgiving?

Family, friends and fabulous food. Who doesn't love Thanksgiving?  That may be the case today, but way back when "skirts were long and hats were tall" Americans were forgetting Thanksgiving, and nobody seemed to care! Thankfully, Sarah Hale appeared. More steadfast than Plymouth Rock, this lady editor knew the holiday needed saving. But would her recipe for rescue ever convince Congress and the presidents?

Join acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson on a journey of a woman and a pen that spanned four decades, the Civil War, and five presidents, all so you could have your turkey and eat it too!

Middle Readers Will Love this Faced Paced Fantasy

 

 

If you are looking for a book adventure full of imagination and  fantasy, I have just the item for you. Between Two Ends by David Ward is one of those wonderful books that you will not be able to put down.

It Takes All Kinds

One of my favorite books is The Great Big Book of Families by Mary Hoffman. This fun and fascinating treasury features all kinds of families and their lives together. Each spread showcases one aspect of home life from houses and holidays, to schools and pets, to feelings and family trees. Ros Asquith's humorous illustrations are a perfect complement  to the charming text from the acclaimed Mary Hoffman; kids will love poring over these pages again and again.
