Today I thought I would show you a little library haul!
Since our library has a limit of 100 books per card we make good use of our library.
I know not everyone has such a great library service so I thought it may be helpful to see inside some of the books we’ve gotten recently.
There really is no theme to the books I’m sharing, it’s just some we’ve been enjoying, there are some graphic novels, non-fiction, STEM books, poetry and more!
Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer. But he’s got a good reason: summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s boring, too, because Maddy doesn’t talk. Ever. But then, one day at the flea market, Maddy does talk―to tell Jack to trade their mom’s car for a box of mysterious seeds. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made.
In Mighty Jack, what starts as a normal little garden out back behind the house quickly grows up into a wild, magical jungle with tiny onion babies running amok, huge, pink pumpkins that bite, and, on one moonlit night that changes everything…a dragon.
