Jabberwalking – my new favorite book!

Jabberwalking by Juan Felipe Herrera

New to our library is the great new poetry book Jabberwalking. This book is filled with enthusiasm and fresh ideas.

This book is both a guide on how to and poetry. The guide is not forceful and feels like a buddy is sharing information. The poetry is fierce and full of energy

I’ve read bits to my coworkers with gestures and full voice. They enjoyed it and want to know more about the book.

So very happy this book is in our library!

Great Graphics for Kindergarten to Third grade

 

Graphic novels can be an area where us grown-ups feel like fish out of water!  Is the content appropriate?  How young is too young for a graphic?  How can you tell which ones are right for your kiddo?

 

Don’t let these questions stop you and your kiddo from checking out the awesome comic books (or graphic novels, as we call them)!  Just ask us!  We are happy to give suggestions for every age.  We have graphics offered in board book form for the very young all the way through adult graphic novels!

 

Check out these suggestions for kindergarten to third grade!

Pugs!

 

My first pug dog, Mia

Pugs are really popular right now, with good reason! If you have ever known a pug, you know  they are loyal, cuddly, curious, and cute.

According to the American Kennel Club, pugs are one of the oldest dog breeds, dating back as far as 400 BC. A pug’s job is the same now as it was then – to keep humans company!

We have some great books featuring pugs here at the library.
