Fancy Nancy, Speed Racer and Star Wars

The new "Fancy Nancy and the Museum" and "Fancy Nancy and the Boy From Paris" by Jane O'Connor have hit the shelves and flown right out again! This time, the books are in an easy reader format--an easy reader is the easy chapter books your child will begin reading in first and second grade. These books will certainly encourage all your little princesses out there to read! Arriving soon: the new picture book "Fancy Nancy and the Bonjour Butterfly". For all you guys out there, we have purchased two new Speed Racer books in anticipation of the movie release. "Challenge of the Masked Racer" and "Great Plan" are currently on shelf and four others are on order. If you are a race car fan, place your hold now before the movie is released! The Speed Racer books would appeal to third through fifth graders. Last but not least, we have purchased three new Star Wars easy readers: "Ready, Set, Podrace", "Beware the Dark Side", and "A Queen's Diary" all by Simon Beecroft.

Time to register for March K-2 Storyhour!

Believe it or not, it's already time to register for our March session of Kindergarten thru Second Grade Storyhour. Registration begins on Saturday, February 9th. This session we will make no-bake cookies, try out some new-to-you fruits, munch on carrots and, of course, read some exceptional books. Good food and good books always go hand-in-hand, don't you think? (Well, clean hands, though!) The K-2 class is limited to 20 so hurry in or call Youth Services at (708) 798-0121 x 222. When you register, please let us know if your child has any food allergies.
