Books of the Week Sept. 30 – Oct. 4

By Michelle Blaylock and Patricia Poe

Book:  A Gaggle of Geese & a Clutter of Cats

Author: Dandi Daley Mackall

Illustrator:  David Hohn

In this book the author, Dandi Daley Mackall, creatively teaches the names for groups of animals using rhymes.  The illustrator, David Hohn, does a fabulous job illustrating the book providing additional conversation topics by putting the animals is human scenarios.

For example, the “murder” of crows are investigating a crime scene.  The “drift” of pigs are drifting down a lazy river on logs, and the “mischief” of rats are raiding a refrigerator.   So do you know what a group of Kangaroos are called? Or how about a group of frogs, or bears, or toads?  

Come on down to the Library and check it out! 

Book Review by Patricia Poe

Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin

Forever My Girl is the first book in the Beaumont series. Liam had his life with Josie planned out while they were in high school. But the decisions that were made will drastically affect them. How can you come back after such a change in your life? How can you reach for a chance at your happily ever after when you have done the wrong things? Liam and Josie’s story is just the beginning of a great series. Rock stars and hometown girls will make for interesting reads. The William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle welcomes you to our library and we will be glad to help you find some great books.
