Sometimes the simplest stories have the most to say. Children's stories can be that way and often give us a lot to think about. Children's authors Eileen and Jerry Spinelli recognize this in their book Today i will . This little book gives a years worth of interesting quotes from children's fiction books, and then challenges the reader with some thoughts and advice. Check out this little green book in the J800 section.

Today is National S'Mores Day! Did you know S'mores were invented by the Girl Scouts of America? When marshmallows became popular early in the 20th Century, enterprising Girl Scouts created an easy to assemble (marshmallows, chocolate bars, and graham crackers) dessert to enjoy over the campfire.
