The Chinese New Year begins on Monday, January 23.  We have plenty of materials about dragons to help you celebrate.  I wish that I had been born in a Dragon year.  Instead I am a Rooster!  I just need to remember that  each of the animals represents both good and bad character traits.  If you want an overview of the Chinese zodiac calendar read this.

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.

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.

I love this series and Percy Jackson. Wow. Who wouldn't want to be the child of Poseidon. Another reason I love these books is because they make you want to learn more about Greek Mythology.  We have lots of books-- at all different reading levels about Greek Gods, Heroes, and Monsters.  Check them out!
