Our Final Party for Connect Your Summer is tomorrow. There will be so many wonderful things to see and do. You can see how much fun I had last year at the party, and I heard a rumor that there may be a few Star Wars characters walking around again. I am looking forward to celebrating another fun Connect Your Summer, and hope to see you at the party tomorrow.
While I had so much fun participating in CYS this year (I managed to read all about bears), I'm already looking forward to fall and more new books. So don't forget to stop inside the library before or after our party to check out just a few more books to get you through until school starts again. Some of my favorite non-bear picture books this year have been:
Gobbled by a snake, a crafty boy finds a find a way out of his predictament by encouraging the snake to eat an increasing number of animals.

In light of the upcoming presidential election, take a look at the lives of past Presidents!
A biography of US president Barack Obama, the first African-American to ever become president.
A biography of George W. Bush, whose response to terrorists forever altered the United States and changed the way security was viewed by the government.
Sometimes called "The Big Dog", Bill Clinton was truly the people's president. This biography offers insights into what made him so popular with the people and how a scandal in the White House almost cost him everything.

Today is National Dance Day! Celebrate with a dance story or stop by our CD collection in the Children's Department for some boogie-worthy tunes. I've included a few suggestions for books about dance below, but you can always find more under the subject headings for fiction and nonfiction dance books. If you're feeling especially groovy today, come show me your best dance moves.
A penguin waddles along, searching for the dancing friend he met yesterday, while encountering other penguins, and a hungry seal on the way.
On a trip to the park with her mother, a young girl hears a rhythm coming from the world around her and begins to move to the beat, finally beginning an impromptu dance in which other childen join her.
