Ms. Mary's Monday Review

Grace Goes to Washington by Kelly DiPucchio is a great book to help children start understanding our American government.  Grace is the president of her school's student council, and during a field trip to Washington, she realizes how her school has three branches of government much like our country.  Her student council learns an important lesson on selflessness when they have an election to decide how to spend money.

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

If you love Goosebumps books by R. L. Stine, come see what we got in recently!  Some of our books were very loved (ragged), and we have replacement copies for some of them. Reading A Night in Terror Tower should have you ready for Halloween.  This book was used as a basis for a two-part episode of the old Goosebumps television series, and a board game was based on it.  A sequel or two also came along in the Give Yourself Goosebumps book series.  At one time, this book was listed by Publishers Weekly as one of the 300 best-selling books for children ever published, with over 1,300,000 copies sold.
