Turtle's Penguin Day by Valeri Gorbachev
Turtle's Penguin Day

Kim Griswell, September 29, 2009

A perfect book to stimulate a preschooler's imagination and sense of play. Seeing turtle dressed like a penguin is giggle-aloud silly! Don't be surprised if your little one wants to dress up like a penguin the next day. Or you just might want to try it yourself.

Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians (Lunch Lady) by Jarrett Krosoczka
Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians (Lunch Lady)

Kim Griswell, September 23, 2009

Taco-vision night goggles? Hairnet nets? This graphic novel for middle-graders takes that boring old lunch tray and dumps it right on your head. Well . . . not literally, but you get the idea. If you've ever resented a librarian for telling you to put down your video controller and pick up a book, you're gonna love meeting Lunch Lady and the kids who help her thwart the evil plan of the League of Librarians. Oh, but you'll have to put down your video controller and read the book. (Not to worry. It's full of fabulous pictures of things like giant yellow demon pigs and those all-time favorite words: Zap! Crash! Pow! I loved it!

The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman
The Story Sisters

Kim Griswell, September 20, 2009

Why can't I be Alice Hoffman? Every time I open one of her books I am pulled into the spell she's woven and cannot come up for air. It's after nine a.m. My hair is scruffy, I need a shower, but I can't get out of bed. The Story Sisters have me so wrapped up in their lives that mine seems a pale shadow. Will Elv ever find justice for what happened to her when she was a child? Will she find peace? Will anyone be left alive to notice? Oh, Alice! How do you do it?

The Curious Garden by Peter Brown
The Curious Garden

Kim Griswell, September 14, 2009

Portland isn't the only city going green! New York City has been busy transforming an old raised railroad into a green trail that runs along the west side of Manhattan. Inspired by NYC's just-opened High Line Park Above the City, The Curious Gardener shows what a single urban kid can do to transform drab into dramatic, grungy into green. A must-buy for urban parents who want to empower their kids to see green possibilities all around.
