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.
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:
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.

After the video games have been played and played and even you're sick of them... and there's nothing on TV...winter break boredom could set in. Don't let it happen - read with a friend. When I'm helping kids find good books they often tell me about titles their friends are reading. Reading the same book at the same time can be fun. You can talk about the book while you're reading it or wait until you've both finished. In Kids' World we're lucky to have many copies of a lot of titles. We also haveBook Discussion books - so you could read with lots of friends in a group read. There's everything from mysteries like Chasing Vermeer to adventure like Stormbreaker and fantasy likeGregor the Overlander. We can put some copies of any of these down at the Drive-up Window. Just give us a call at 847-506-2620. So don't get bored - talk to some friends - pick out a book and get reading!
