Mikael rated this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. Thank you so much for sharing your book review Mikael!

This summer, our theme is "Alabama Has A Universe Of Stories" and we're celebrating our states 200 bicentennial, so we absolutely LOVE that Mikael B. chose to review a book about a famous Alabamian! Dr. Carver was born in Missouri but moved to Alabama to teach at the Tuskegee Institute.

He did so much for the world and we're very lucky to have had him teaching in our wonderful state, where he taught farmers about the benefits of crop rotation and keeping farm soil nutritious. One of his more widely known contributions to science was his development of many products through peanuts including: wood stains, coffee, oils, paper, flour, cereal and even laundry detergent (among many many more!).

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

You're All My Favorites by Sam McBratney is a great story to read to your little cubs this summer!  Sibling rivalry can be a big problem, but this picture book might reassure your family.  The book is on a 3.0 A. R. level.

If you are a big Star Wars fan, please come in and ask where the books are.  We have easy readers, graphic novels, and Science Fiction chapter books.  We also have the large visual guides to some of the movies that will help fans get the details and diagrams about characters and machinery.

     If I Were a Park Ranger by Catherine Stier is one of many books you may want to read this summer to investigate future careers. 
     Be sure to come listen to Ranger Daphne here at DPL on June 5 at 10:30, and ask her about her job.  She is our favorite thing about Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge!

Natasha Wing's The Night Before Kindergarten Graduation is a good book to read at the end of the school year.  We just got a new copy in here, so please come get it to read with your family.
