LB's had a busy couple of weeks. Not only was he traversing around Cape Cod, but he just back from a trip in the Northern Michigan visiting one of our relatives, Uncle Smokey the Bear! Uncle Smokey has the very important job of reminding people of the dangers of forest fires. And he gets to wear a cool Park Ranger's Hat. He even has his own website! Uncle Smokey's a pretty tech-savvy bear! Of course, I'm pretty tech-savvy myself. I just don't have a website that's all my own. Check out LB's adventure over on flickr! And don't forget you just have one more week to earn badges in Connect Your Summer!
If you liked Harry Potter, then give these a try:
Stolen by Sarah Prineas; illustrations by Antonio Javier Caparo
The hound of Rowan by Henry H. Neff
The lives of Christopher Chant by Diana Wynne Jones
If you liked books like the Warriors series, then try these:
The capture by Kathryn Lasky
Varjak Paw by S.F. Said; illustrated by Dave McKean
Redwall by Brian Jacques; illustrated by Gary Chalk
If you liked Diary of a Wimpy Kid, then try some of these titles:
Let's pretend this never happened: by Jamie Kelly by Jim Benton
Tales from a not-so-fabulous life by Rachel Renee Russell
Middle school is worse than meatloaf: a year told through stuff by Jennifer L. Holm; pictures by Elicia Castaldi
LB earned us another badge from Connect Your Summer. Here's some pictures of him earning the Traveler Badge! He traveled to Massachusetts and, apparently, back in time! He visited Plymouth and saw the Plymouth Rock. Funny. LB says it's in a great big cage. I think they think it may try to run away! And then he got to tour the Mayflower II. It's not the original ship, but is a full-scale replica that sailed from Great Britain to Plymouth in 1957 just like the real Mayflower did! LB says he would have visited Plimoth Plantation as well, but it was over 100 degrees (a little warm for a fur coat!) so he settled on visiting the beach instead.
This has got me wanting to learn more about the Pilgrims, so I checked what we had to offer here at CPL. Found a lot of great books! I didn't really check them out (because I never leave the library) so, if YOU want to, they are all still here! Happy Reading!
