Thirteen-year-old Christa's plans for her favorite holiday are derailed when her parents announce their divorce and Christa spends Christmas in Europe with her mom, but even though her dad remains in Chicago, he sends Christa on a scavenger hunt made up of dares that send her all over Florence, Paris, and London.

Did you know that it is Children's Book Week? This year, from April 30 - May 6, we're celebrating children's literature at the library. I'm joining in the fun by dressing up as one of my favorite book characters, Winnie-the-Pooh. Who is your favorite character?
Even though I love Pooh Bear, there are always new stories to discover. Below are some great stories I've read this year. I hope to see you soon at the library - please come show or tell me about your favorite children's books and characters.
Misty Copeland has been chosen as the honorary chair for National Library Week. Mark your calendars for April 8-14, because it will be a great week to celebrate our fabulous library. Misty Copeland is an accomplished ballet dancer and author, so she knows a lot about telling a good story in many different ways. I've included some suggestions below, some books about interesting dancers and of course, those by Misty Copeland herself.
Enjoy your National Library Week celebrations. Bear Hugs,
