Some award winning books are great and some are not but I think you'll like this one -  The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. It just won the Newbery Award! It's about a gorilla who lives in a shopping mall. A picture book for older kids won The Randolph Caldecott Medal. It's title is This Is not My Hat by J. Klassen. It's sly and funny. For more award winners go to the Kids' World website.

Amelia Bedelia is 50 years old!  Can you believe these books have been around for half a century?  The books were first published in 1963.  Look at the first cover shown here!  It might look dated, but we know Amelia Bedelia will never grow old.  She is as young at heart and funny as ever.  Read about author Peggy Parish here.

“Once upon a time there were three dinosaurs and a poorly supervised little girl named Goldilocks.” Wait, that’s not how the story goes!  Check out Mo Willems' latest book and hilarious version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  In this book, Goldilocks eats pudding, not porridge, and the three dinosaurs, not bears, are “definitely not hiding in the woods waiting for an unsuspecting kid."  Both parents and kids will enjoy this laugh-out-loud story where the first chair is “Too tall,” the second chair is “Too tall,” and the third chair is, “TOO TALL!”

Recently, many of you have come in looking for realistic fiction for your first school reading assignment but are not really sure what it is. Realistic fiction is a story that could really happen. That means no magic wands or talking animals or fairies that appear and disappear. It can be funny or sad. It can be full of action or thoughtful. If you are in need of a suggestion, give us a call or drop by the desk for some ideas. We love to help!
