Monday Children’s Book Reviews for July 30, 2012

It’s not too late! There’s still time to read and play the Alameda County Library Summer Reading Game, Reading is SO Delicious! Come in to any branch of the Library to pick up a game board. If you already have one but forgot about the game, well, look around and find it!

Think about how much time you’ve spent reading already! It’s a cinch! Mark your board then bring it in to the Library to spin and stamp and WIN!

There are still great programs planned for you to enjoy. And be sure to check out the Reading Game blog – it’s full of jokes, crafts, videos, recipes, book suggestions, and places to go and have fun.

Summer isn’t over yet, but it’s passing quickly. ENJOY!

And you might want to read Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath

“‘My name is Primrose Squarp. I am eleven years old. I have hair the color of carrots in apricot glaze (recipe to follow), skin fair and clear where it isn’t freckled, and eyes like summer storms.’

“Readers will know right from the start that the narrator of Everything on a Waffle is going to tell her story straight and pull no punches. Primrose’s parents have been lost at sea, but she believes without an iota of doubt that they are still alive, somewhere.”   A Newbery Honor Book         [J HORVATH]
