Hey kids. Boy. Librarians sure like bears. They find them everywhere. Miss Ruth found one of my cousins at the Paradise Inn at Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington. Have you ever been to a National Park? They are all over the country and have some of the prettiest scenery. And you might just see some wild animals (like bears!) in their natural habitat. What makes Mt Rainier so special is that this beautiful mountain is actually a volcano! It hasn't erupted in a few thousand years though, so you don't have to be afraid if you visit. And it's so tall, you can actually see snow and glaciers on top, even in the summertime. Whoa, that's tall. As you can see, my cousin is in charge of the mail that all the tourists send home to their friends and family. I like mail too. That's a hint, in case you didn't pick up on it. I'd love to hear from you!

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!
LB's cousin, Clarke, came to visit and LB took him on a tour all over Canton. They forgot to label their pictures, so put your sleuth skills to the test and help the bears remember where in Canton they visited.
Read the clue, look at the picture and send your guess to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Where in Canton #7", then claim your Sleuth it! badge. All correct entries will be entered in a drawing for a prize at the end of the contest. Please one entry per picture.
*If you missed any pictures, you can still submit an entry for them until noon on Friday, August 16. Just look under the Sleuth it! badge Activities.*
Clue #7: Home again!
