Tween Boys Build

Yes, it's true that they are building a new library in Forest, but we were focused on a different kind of building tonight. We were more interested in building with Legos! We had a special summer reading program just for tween boys at the Forest Public Library. Then we turned them loose with a bunch of Legos and waited to see what they would come up with. The results were awesome and we are going to keep them on display throughout the rest of the summer. If you need a closer look, feel free to come and check them out. The guys even asked if we could make this a regular event. Hmm...

New Reads!!!

A rhyming book with so much heart, you'll just fall in love with Bunny Blue as he searches for his grandmother. Does Bunny Blue find her? It's a great book to read aloud to any child!
A spin on the classic rhyme, this fast-paced book will take you higher and higher as Eensy (the spider) finds out that if you fall you must pick yourself up! Awesome read for kids in K-6th grades!

Do you have a child with an imagination the size of the world? (and a messy room the size of Jupiter?) Check out this delightful 10-step book on how to inspire your child to clean his/her room!

This might just be one of my favorite summer picture book reads, although you can read it whenever you'd like. It has so many levels of inspiration for tolerance and respect of other people's differences. Two girls + Two Sandwiches= a book 4 anyone to enjoy!
