Ms. Mary's Monday Review

The board book The Very Hungry Caterpillar's Christmas 123 is a precious counting book for little ones with appropriately colorful holiday pictures in Eric Carle style.  We have other great board books for this season, as well!

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

Thirty Minutes Over Oregon by Marc Tyler Nobleman tells of Japanese pilot Nubuo Fujita's missions into the United States.  Mr. Fujita actually dropped bombs on Oregon soil twice during World War II.  He returned several times in later years as a friend to the people of that region.  The book is on a 5.7 A. R. level, and is worth 0.5 point.

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

Ben Mantle wrote The Best Christmas Present Ever.   Sometimes the simple things are what make life fun, and Bear learns that after he opens his huge gift box from Squirrel.
We have recently gotten in several new holiday books!

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

Jan Brett is the author of many good winter books, including The Mitten.  This book is on a 3.9 A. R. level, and earns one half point upon passing the test.  Her books are great for the holidays!

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

Pete the Cat's Giant Groovy Book has nine books in one.  Most of the books in this volume are A. R. levels 1.3 to 2.1.  Almost all of the Pete books are written by James Dean, who was born in Fort Payne and went to Auburn University.  I love to let kids know about that local connection.  We have so many other Pete books, as well, so take a look the next time you are here!
