Rin Tin Tin by Susan Orlean tells the powerful tale of Rin Tin Tin's journey from an orphaned pup to a Hollywood celebrity and international icon. It begins on a battlefield in France in World War I, when a young American soldier discovers a German Shepherd puppy among the ruins of a bombed out dog kennel. Not only did he see a survivor, but something very special that also captured the attention of Warner Brothers in Hollywood. The rest is Hollywood history, but if you want to know more, come join our group for an interesting discussion!

Hey Kids. Last time LB reported on his travels, he said he was off to earn his Back In Time Badge next. He did it by traveling to Pennsylvania (a state he's never visited before, yay!) to see Gettysburg, a battlefield from the Civil War. This is doubly interesting because the Battle of Gettysburg was fought 150 years ago, this past July. Want to learn more? There are lots of nonfiction books you can read, or you can check out:
I survived the Battle of Gettysburg, 1863 by Lauren Tarshis ; illustrated by Scott Dawson — This is a series that is super popular at the library right now!
You might have to be put on hold for it. If you don't know how to do that, don't be afraid to ask one of my super helpful librarian friends. They love to help kids do that.Bear Hugs!
