We’re closed to the public but librarians are working hard to make sure you have access to a variety of resources. With a library card you can access electronic books, audio books, complete research using online databases, flip through electronic versions of magazines and more. If you don’t have a library card, now is the perfect time to get one. It’s easy to do from the comfort of your home because many libraries have the capability for you to sign up electronically. Check out your local library’s website for more information.
Need ideas of enjoyable audio books or electronic books for children and teens? I have ideas. Tired of reading the same bedtime stories over and over? I can recommend the best electronic picture books. I’m here for you. Tell me what you need.
My first recommendation is a new picture book with the sweetest story and stunning illustrations created with cut paper, acrylic paints and Photoshop. In A Way With Wild Things by Larissa Theule and illustrated by Sara Palacios, Poppy Ann Fields is an introverted, nature loving girl who prefers observing bugs to interacting with people. But she can’t avoid people all the time. For example at her Grandma’s 100th birthday party. That’s all the summary you get. The story is too sweet to spoil. If you have access to the e-book now, read it today. If not, add it to your To Be Read List.
For my family members who were at Grandma Brown’s 100th birthday party in 1981, I’ll look for pictures from the celebration at her house with no indoor plumbing and an outhouse. If you have some, please share them with me.
