New Books

Now on our "new books" shelves:

I Want My Hat Back
E Klas

Nice, little easy-reader. Bear is looking for his hat. He asks everyone he sees, with different responses. It's very sweet. And then.

Oh, dear. Who recommended this book to me?

I like it. But I'm not going to tell you what happens at the end that caused me to make a very loud noise in the library and clap both hands over my mouth.

Fancy Nancy: Aspiring Artist
E Ocon

Another Fancy Nancy! Don't worry, we got TWO copies, so odds are you'll be able to get your hands on it (and yes, S. N., I am thinking of you). This one seems a bit longer than previous ones - it contains a lot of information about famous artists, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. I do like when a little learning is slipped in, and this may inspire kids to create the way it inspires Fancy Nancy - or, it may bore them and seem too obviously educational. We'll see what the patrons think!

My Side of the Car

E Feif

Any child - or adult - can identify with this one. Sadie has been dying to go to the zoo, but something always happens to cancel her plans. This time, she is determined it is going to happen, and when, on the way there, her father announces that it has started to rain, she quickly assures him that it is NOT raining on "my side of the car."
