Oh, the Places You Will Go, When You Open a Book!

Have you ever wanted to  travel back in time?  Do you day dream of faraway places and wonder what it would be like? Just grab a book. Here are a few that I think you will enjoy.

It's a Whale of a Tale

You've probably heard by now that there will be a Finding Nemo sequel released in 2015 titled Finding Dory.  While I'm excited about a sequel to one of my favorite animated movies, I have to say 2015 is soooo long away!  What's a fish fan to do?  Read, of course!  Here are some of my favorite fishy books to help "tide" you over:

One Fish Two Fish One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss

The classic tale of animals with typical Seussical names! 

 

Happy Hanukkah

 

   

 Hanukkah begins on this Friday at sundown. If you are looking for items to read this season,  I currently have a display of Hanukkah books in the children's area.  Feel free to stop by and check out our collection.  You can also order books online and have them sent to your community library. This is a free service. 

Growing up, my family had a tradition of making gifts for one another during the holidays.  The projects that my Mom and I made together are some of my best childhood memories.  There are all kinds of art & craft books for children in the library, including those for Hanukkah.
