March is full of fun holidays. One of my favorites is "If My Pet Had Thumbs Day" which is celebrated on March 3rd. Just think of all the things your pet could do if it had thumbs, like no more wet tennis balls for starters. I know my dog would be helping himself to a lot more treats!

If you are a football fan, I think I know where you will be this Sunday night! Even if your favorite team will not by playing, you can still read about them. The series NFL Today devotes an entire volume to the history of each team while highlighting their greatest players and most exciting moments in franchise history. It could be great reading in the off season.

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.

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.
