There was a man who loved a rat and other vile little poems by written by Gerda Rovetch ; illustrated by Lissa Rovetch — is full of colorful, short poems will make you laugh and declare how gross they are all at the same time! My favorites are the man who kept sardines in his pants, the man who baked bread with a snake, and the man who found a kidney. Which ones did you enjoy?

As we begin Bee Season, the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee is a neat resource to help your student prepare. Spellers are given the definition of a word on screen. A recorded voice pronounces the word (multiple times if needed). Spellers can attempt to spell the word as many times as they like. After the first misspelling, Spelling Bee gives hints to help. Once a a word is spelled correctly (or the speller "gives up") a word map is displayed, given helpful hints to similar words and letter patterns. Try it out today!

The concert will feature performances by local youth and concessions will be available. Consider supporting these students and the library.

We are delighted to have been chosen by this group of students for their community project, which asks them to find a community need and address that need with their project. They will be entering their project in a local DI competition in February and we wish them good luck.
