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.
