Summer Reading is Almost Over!

Summer Reading ends August 6th!  Don't forget to come in for your prizes, brag tags, and raffle tickets!  

Prizes will be given out until Friday, August 12th.

 

Children's Book of the Week:
'Cyril and Pat.'

Each week our children's librarian is going to choose a different book to feature that she thinks is special.
 

This week's book is 'Cyril and Pat,' written and illustrated by Emily Gravett.  This is a funny and charming book about a friendship between a squirrel and a rat.  Cyril the squirrel is the only squirrel in the whole park, and is very lonely, until he meets Pat.  Everyone seems to know Pat is a rat, except for Cyril.  What will Cyril do when he finds out?

 

This picture book in rhyme is wonderful to read out loud and encourages readers to join in the refrain.  It has an important message about friendship while being super silly.  Children will want to read this over and over.  Best for ages 3-6.
