Blubber — which is about bullying and name-calling and standing up for yourself.
Guess What? My birthday is January 16th — this Saturday!!! Ironically, it happens to fall just before Storytime Teddy Bear week (by the way kids — don't forget to bring your teddy bears to Storytime next week!). I share my birthday month with some very cool people who also work at the library. And I even share a Birthday with Brad the Teen Librarian! If you are a human and you work at the library, you get the day off for your birthday. But since I live here, I get to celebrate my Birthday with all of you! Make sure you come and sing! I even accept gifts. I like cookies. After the library closes on Saturday, me and LB (remember him? My Little Buddy that Santa brought?) are going to eat cake. Honey flavored cake. Yum. I can't wait until Saturday. Happy Birthday to me....
Celebrate Noel Streatfeild's birthday on December 24th! Come to the library early (we're closed on the 24th and 25th) to check out some of her books. My favorite is Ballet Shoes, and the library has many other fiction books about ballet, or informative books on dance. Come check them out!
Well, we've missed the actual day (November 10) of Neil Gaiman's birthday, but it's never too late to celebrate a wonderful author! He's gotten a lot of attention this year between winning the Newbery Award for The Graveyard Book, and the release of the film version of Coraline. If those piqued your interest, you might enjoy other books by Neil Gaiman. You'll find them all over the library, for Children, Teens and Adults.
Happy birthday, Sesame Street!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Take some time this week to celebrate Julie Andrews' birthday (October 1). If you haven't read one of her books before, she has written several under the name Julie Edwards. It's also the perfect week to check out Mary Poppins, or any of Julie Andrews' other movies. Happy Birthday, Julie Andrews!
Yes, I know it’s over a month away. But if you’re looking for some great environmental reads in the meantime, try checking out a book by Carl Hiaasen in honor of his birthday today!
