Books of the Week Dec. 16-20

By Michelle Blaylock and Patricia Poe

TitleLambslide 

Author: Ann Patchett 

Illustrator: Robin Preiss Glasser (Fancy Nancy Illustrator) 

This is one of our brand-new books that came in this week. It is entertaining as well as educational.   

The setting is a farm with Mr. and Mrs. Farmer, their daughter, Nicolette, and, of course, farm animals.   

Nicolette decides to run for class president. Her mom says she will win by a landslide. The lambs overhear her and think she has said “lambslide.”    

Once the lambs are told they misheard Mrs. Farmer, they are very disappointed. Soon they launch a campaign to try to convince everyone that a lambslide would be a great idea. 

The lambs learn about working together, planning a project, talking to others about concerns, campaigning and voting.   

This is just one of our new children’s books.  We also have new books in large print and regular print.   

Don’t forget our Story Time Christmas Party Dec. 20 at 4 p.m. Hope you have a blessed Christmas!

Title: Incredibull Stella: How the Love of a Pit Bull Rescued a Family 

Author: Marika Meeks and Elizabeth Ridley 

 

This true story is based on a woman who rescued a Pit Bull puppy who had been abandoned in the cold. 

Marika Meeks and her family were not sure if they could or even should adopt this affectionate puppy since Marika was recovering from stage 3 breast cancer. In the course of adopting the dog, now named Stella, the family and Marika have begun sharing Stella’s story with the world and helping to advocate animal shelters and Pit Bull awareness.  

We hope our readers will enjoy this non-fiction book that just happens to be in our large print section.
