Sign up for Arts & Fables this Friday, December 6, at 9:30 or 10:30 a.m. We will be listening to different versions of the Gingerbread Man story and making a Gingerbread Man decoration out of air-drying clay.
Registration has started for the Monarch (Kindergarten – grade 3), Bluestem (grades 3 – 5), and Rebecca Caudill (grades 4 – 8) online reading clubs! In Children’s Services you will find the lists, annotated bibliographies, and copies of the books. Join your club (we’ll be happy to register you!) then read (or listen to) and log the minimum number of nominated books (see below). Vote for your favorite at the library (unless you are voting at school)! Read all 20 books on your list and you will be eligible for a free paperback copy of one of the nominees for 2015.
We have lost one of the great children’s authors this month, Barbara Park. One of the many favorites she wrote was about the many adventures of Junie B. Jones. Park won numerous awards, including several Children’s Choice Awards.
Park once said some people measure the value of a children’s book in terms of morals lessons it tries to impose or role models it depicts, but she did not agree. In the many remembrance posts the one that fit the best was “As Junie would say, I have sad in me.”
