Book Sightings!

Hey Kids,
How well do you really know your book characters, like Flat Stanley or Amelia Bedelia? One way to find out is to take some book quizzes given on the HarperCollins Children's Book Site. Lots of great books have quizzes you can take to test your knowledge, or there are also fun games to play. Look for secrets in the Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman object game or help Bernie feed the beast in The Rotten School Game. The more you read, the better you will do!

Homegrown Harvest

Homegrown harvest: a season-by-season guide to a sustainable kitchen garden by Rita Pelczar, editor in chief — The idea of having a kitchen garden sounds so romantic, but is it really doable? It is! This book will take you through the entire year, from planning to harvest and on. It also contains a wealth of information about particular vegetables, fruits, and herbs that you might grow in your garden. The glorious full-color photographs make this book a treat just to look through, but you'll definitely want to start a garden once you do.

March is Reading Month Fun!

March is National Reading Month. This annual celebration is designed to encourage reading as a fun activity for the whole family. Various community organizations are helping us promote reading in fun ways. On March 4, the Plymouth Canton Preschool staff presented a storytime in honor of Dr. Seuss. Later in the month, Community Finanacial and the Kiwanis Club of Canton will be at the library to share their love of reading.

Come on in to help get your children started on a lifetime of reading!
