Before Your Next "Required Reading List"

Before you go back to school, I wanted to provide everyone with a few really fun books with a touch of humor. My favorite is No More Dead Dogs  Gordon Korman. It's hilarious, and it always leaves me in a good mood. I am a huge believer that reading should be fun, and children should be encouraged to read what they love.  So, let me know if you like these books. I would be happy to offer additional booklists like this one.

 

 

 

 

For the Love of a Bear

 

This weekend, on  August 21, 1921, Winnie the Pooh will turn 90 years old. 

Winnie the Pooh once said, "If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you." Luckily, we will never have to live without Winnie the Pooh for he will live forever in the  pages of books (and  in our hearts).

The original tales and poems by A. A. Milne are charming, and will spark the imagination of young readers. I highly recommend that you give them a try.

It's Time to Plan for Success

To be successful in school it is important to be organized. But, it's not an easy task for young people who have to deal with schoolwork, friends, activities, chores, rooms, backpacks, lockers, desks, and what about fun? No wonder it becomes difficult for children to keep track of everything in their lives! 

Rave Reviews for The Emerald Atlas

I have been listening to,The Emerals Atlas, and it's something that I think you will enjoy. This is a paced fantasy fiction book that will grab your attention and leave you wanting more. What makes the audio edition so special is that it's read by Jim Dale...enough said. 

Looking for an end of summer read?

If you are like me, it's the end of the summer, and you are looking for something enjoyable to read. I would like to suggest, a new series: Knightley Academy.

Pig Out on Reading!

Come and meet Daisy II the pig! Her friend and owner Farmer Minor does storytelling about Daisy's formative years (all true) with Farmer & Mrs. Minor. We share Daisy noises, give Daisy a treat, and talk about Daisy's pampered porcine life of reading and love of “Pig Books” and Libraries. Farmer Minor brings his rocking chair, many of Daisy's newspaper articles on posters and of course, many of their favorite pig books. At the end of the program, following the Daisy pledge, all are able to pet Daisy.
