Bear says thanks by Karma Wilson ; illustrations by Jane Chapman — An impromptu party in Bear's Den prompts him to be thankful for all his friends. This book inspired me to share what I am thankful for...YOU! I'm so glad that you come and visit me at the library, and read my blog. And for all my Librarian friends who keep me company and look out for good books for me to read. And for LB who keeps me up to date on the outside world, and keeps me company when the library is closed.
What are you thankful for? I'd love to hear it.

Steven Spielberg's highly anticipated new film Lincoln opens on November 9. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis as our 16th president, and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln, it is inspired by Doris Kearns Goodwin's 2005 book Team of Rivals: the political genius of Abraham Lincoln. The film focuses on Lincoln's final few months in office, specifically his tireless efforts to get the 13th Amendment to the Constitution (abolishing slavery) passed.
