Faye Hanson-Midnight at the zoo

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Max and Mia are very excited about their school trip to the zoo. But when they arrive, not much is happening: the zebra is asleep, the lions are hiding, and they can’t even see a monkey. Max and Mia make the best of it — after all, if you look very carefully, there is something to see everywhere. But when they are accidently locked in the zoo at night, they realize that midnight is when the zoo comes alive!   c. 2016

Deborah Underwood-Here comes teacher cat

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Cat is not pleased to be tapped as substitute teacher. Not only is it cutting into his naptime, but a roomful of kittens is a little, well, scary. At school, he’s faced with six adorable kittens and follows the lesson plan of music, building, and painting—only in pure, mischief-making Cat style. By the end, Cat has learned a thing or two about inspiring others by being himself. But even more heart-melting and humorous is what the kittens have learned from Cat.  c. 2017
