What We Are Reading - September 2017

Here are September favorites - all available through the  Carnegie Library.  Enjoy!

Dark Night by Dorothee de Monfried is about Little Felix who is walking home through the forest when and hears scary sounds. Can something as small as a rabbit help Felix scare away the spooky things in things in the woods? This picture book is great for kids who want to conquer those scary things in the dark.

Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson is the perfect book as we move into fall and talk about the changing seasons. 

The Gumpy Pets by Kristine A. Lombandi is my favorite in this batch of books.  The main character, Billy, is moody and cranky and his mother takes to the animal rescue to cheer him up. He catches the eye of a similarly grumpy dog and finds his perfect match. 

Hank Finds an Egg by Rebecca Dudley has no words but spectacular pictures. It tells the story of Hank who finds an egg and tries to return the egg to its nest, but it doesn't go so well.  He finds some help and keeps the egg safe. Check it out to see the rest of the story! 

We love books by Kevin Henkes. Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse is a story familiar to anyone who has obtained a special item and just can't concentrate on anything else.  Lilly brings her purple plastic purse and its treasures to school and is so distracted by it and can't wait until sharing time. It's confiscated by her teacher and Lilly focuses in on revenge and getting her purse back.
