The Dog Days of Summer

It’s hot out there folks. It’s the type of heat that makes you want to stay inside and not do much of anything at all, except maybe read a good book. Read a good book while sitting next to a fan, with the A/C on full blast, with a glass of iced tea next to you. Apparently, as I found out during my quick internet search before writing this blog, the term ‘dog days of summer’ can’t actually be used during any ole’ month, no matter how hot it is. The idiom is supposed to be used during the period of time when Sirius, the Dog Star and the brightest visible star from any part of Earth, rises at the same time as the sun: usually somewhere between July 3rd to August 11th.

LGBTQIA Picture Books

Last week I posted about Pride Month and gave some recommendations for diverse young adult reads. This week we’re continuing the celebration by looking at some picture books that help bring LGBTQIA representation to our shortest shelves and youngest readers. These books are kind, funny, and heart-warming in turn. They're also really great for story time.
