Just a Story

July 28, 2021

This new title by Jeff Mack is a great story to read aloud to the preschool set. A young boy finds a book in a library, and his imagination runs wild. He is almost captured by pirates, stomped by a herd of elephants, stepped on by a baby dragon, and worst of all, ALMOST KISSED by a frog. A whimsical ode to the power of imagination and the power of stories to take us anywhere we like…

The Elephant in the Room

June 23, 2021

I absolutely loved this children’s book. Holly Goldberg Sloan has definitely hit this one out of the park! Sila is an American, but her parents are Turkish citizens. And when Sila’s mom protests being paid less as a housekeeping person than her male counterparts, the hotel where she worked for fourteen years fires her and causes her to be deported. But after a series of coincidences involving an older gentleman, an elephant, and a friend from her school, Sila manages to get her mom on the right track to come home. Sloan has penned a heartwarming story with well developed and extremely likable characters. This one is not to be missed!

June 26, 2020

Our StoryWalk is now up! Take a walk at Tallman Mountain State Park and read a children’s book at the same time. Our StoryWalk® features Gaia Cornwall’s “Jabari Jumps”—a warmhearted story about bravery and trying something new. As you take a short walk, you’ll follow numbered sign posts that display pages of the book. Everyone who finishes the StoryWalk® will have a chance to win a copy of Jabari Jumps.
