It Takes All Kinds

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. A celebration of the diverse fabric of kith and kin the world over, The Great Big Book of Families is a great big treat for every family to share.

Help Build A Stronger Community @ The Library

At the Atascocita Branch, we are currently seeking adult volunteers who are willing to devote a few hours of their time on an ongoing basis. There are several opportunities which would allow you to work with the library collection and/or assist the Children’s department.  By sharing your time and talents you will be contributing to the success of our library, and thus helping others in your community.

Open A Book to Discover A World of Creative Possibilities

 

 

 When children are given opportunities to explore, discover and create they develop skills, which can be applied to other areas of their lives; such as creativity and problem solving. So, open a book to expand the possibilities in your child’s life.

Author Highlight, Gary Soto

Gary Soto's books, are sprinkled with Spanish expressions and phrases, and typically portray Mexican-American children and teenagers growing up in California. Although many of his characters are Mexican-American, all readers can easily identify with the situations and emotions of growing up that Soto presents.
