Rosenthal and Lichtenheld have done it again!  The team who gave us Duck! Rabbit! are back with a hilarious story about an exclamation mark, Exclamation Mark.  Exclamation mark knows he’s different from the other punctuation marks.  No matter how hard he tries, he just doesn’t fit in.  When a question mark overwhelms him with questions, the sad and frustrated exclamation mark tells him to, “Stop!” finally finding his voice and identity.  His confidence builds and he exclaims with joy, “Hi! Wow! Look what I can do!”  This is a fun read-aloud filled with personality and opportunities to discuss grammar.

If you're in 7th grade and older you need to check out the library's new space for teens - it's called The Hub. It's beyond anything you've ever seen in the library. There are DIY kits - this month's is a marshmallow launcher. You can check out MacBook Airs to use in the room plus Wii, PlayStation and X-box games. You can, also, sit and read, study or draw.  Seriously - you need to get in here.

Considering the tragedies this week in Boston, we all worry about the children in our lives and how they cope with what seems like an endless stream of fear and sadness. There are books about how adults can help children cope with stress and anxiety and we have put together a list of titles. I also found that the National Association of School Psychologists website also has helpful information. If you would like more information about this topic please don't hesitate to contact the library.

You never know what you will find in Kids World. Yesterday we were all about making robots with just a pager battery and 3 volt motor. Of course we had to put our own spin on it by covering the electronics with a decorated plastic egg. Check out the results!

If you like reading historical fiction, pick up Titanic: Voices from the Disaster for your next read.  This book was voted one of the best nonfiction (informational) books of the year, but it reads like a story.  You’ll get to know the passengers and workers like you would characters in a chapter book.  Authentic photographs included in the book help the story come alive.  This is a page turner you won’t be able to put down, even knowing the story’s tragic end.
