My name is Nugget and there’s nothing I love more than a good story. That’s why I can’t wait for the next sessions of Paws to Read! Paws to Read is a fun library program where I get to listen to kids read aloud. Did you know that reading aloud to a dog can help improve your reading skills? What a great way to practice! Please visit me and my friends from Rainbow Assisted Therapy at the Arlington Heights Library on:

Need to read a book assigned by your school this summer? Kids' World has booklists from many schools. We also try to pull the books and place them on a cart near the Summer Reading display. If you're wondering if we have your book contact us. If it's available, we'll put it downstairs at the drive-up. Hope to hear from you!

This summer, our Junior Library volunteers have been working on additions to the Kids World web site. Check out the videos they made using the apps DoodleCast and Puppet Pals on iPads. Each video is an excerpt from one of our summer reading books. They have also been working on podcasts in the Studio where they talk about their top picks for the summer.

Are you looking for a terrific read? Crater by Homer Hickam might be just what you are looking for. Crater is a teen who lives on the moon, mining it for Helium-3, a perfect fuel for the time. An act of heroism gets Crater noticed and he soon finds himself on a mission that could cost him his life. The rest you will have to find out on your own. I hate to ruin a surprise.

Have you ever read a novel that's written like a poem? Sometimes the lines rhyme and sometimes they don't.. Some of my favorite books are written this way. The author seems to use less words but still tells a great story. I made a list in case you'd like to try some. Let me know if you do and what you think!

Did you know the library has Lalaloopsy books, DVDs, and games? Take a look! If you like these little dolls that have come to life, you might enjoy other stories about dolls and stuffed animals with a life of their own:

I always loved camping. Sitting around a fire listening to scary stories, eating s'mores and trying not to burn my marshmallows. On Friday, April 20th, come to the library for our version of a camping experience. Scary stories, games and a craft are all part of it along with real s'mores and a not so real campfire. The best part - no bugs! For ages 8-11.
