Kids Titles - Try Something New

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: the Third WheelHas your kid read every Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Percy Jackson and the Olympians title?  Worse yet, is he or she on a long waiting list for the next one?  If your child is chomping at the bit waiting for the next “must read” title out there, why not take the opportunity to discover a new author or series you haven’t tried before?...

Did You Grow Up with Frog and Toad?

For many adults, the Frog and Toad series, are books that you enjoy reading as a child, and now you are sharing them with your children or grandchildren. 

I love it when parents share this type of information with me. Not only does it warm my heart, but it also gives me the opportunity to recommend other titles that you might enjoy. 

So, stop by the library to say " hi!" While you are here; share a story or ask a question because we would love to get to know you.

"Día de los muertos <<DEE ah deh lohs MWEHR tohs>> is a Mexican holiday that honors the dead. Many Mexican American communities also celebrate it. Día de los muertos is a Spanish phrase meaning day of the dead. On this day, families gather in churches, at cemeteries, and in homes. They pray for and remember loved ones who have died. The celebration is usually on November 2, the Roman Catholic religious festival of All Souls' Day. Some people celebrate over several days, including All Saints' Day on November 1.

Some live in water. Some live in trees. All are mammals, and most do what they please. Can you guess what makes one of these animals from Australia distinctly different than the others?  I'll give you a hint; it has webbed feet and a bill. But that is not the only thing that makes this animal unique. If you want to guess you can leave a comment below. I’ll be posting the answer next week. Good luck!

Is there a Golden Ticket?

It has long been a trend for film makers is to create films based on children’s literature.  I am sure you have heard the saying, “the book is better than the movie.” In my opinion, that is certainly true. In order to make a movie, they must cut or expand the content of the original story which causes it to become distorted. Consequently, movies rarely match the experience that you have created in your mind while reading.
