Read Any Good Books Lately?
written by Dewy and Godiva, your favorite library guinea pigs
The Wilson Memorial library has cataloged over 50 new titles this past month, including new young adult and large print editions! Dewey recommends “The Titan’s Curse” by Rick Riordan and “The Wheel of Darkness” by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Godiva recommends “The Sunflower” by Richard Paul Evans, “Playing for Pizza” by John Grisham and “Sisters” by Danielle Steel.
The Wilson Memorial Library has also started building a Dragon in the children’s section. Each time a child reads a book and returns it to the library, they are able to fill out a Dragon’s Scale and place it up on our wall to promote reading. So far our Dragon has 40 scales in just less than 2 weeks!! The more scales we get the larger our Dragon becomes. Our goal is to fill up the entire wall in the children’s section. Every five scales a child fills out, they are given a delicious prize!
Did you know having your child read to your dog, or any pet at home, can improve their reading skills? Just ask Reagan, Rachel's literary dog pictured above. Reagan loves to be read to. Dogs are a wonderful listener for children of all ages, whether your child is a beginning reader or an advanced reader, reading to your dog gives your children a quiet listener who is always ready for a good “tail!” Reagan’s favorite books include “My Dog is the Best!” by Stephanie Calmenson and “If Dogs Ruled the World,” by Faith McNulty
