Book A Librarian

Librarian Recommended

A look at the Presidents of the United States through the pets that accompanied them to the White House. A lyrical, often humorous poem describes the pets as each is brought to life by a cartoon style picture. Includes interesting presidential facts, accomplishments, and events. Would make a great read-a-loud as the pictures, poems, and facts make it fun and accessible for a range of ages.(Ages: 2nd - 5th)

After her play date is cancelled, a young girl and her dad have a fun day tackling their to-do lists together. Ages 0-8.

When a young boy begins to play on his family’s piano, reveling in the fun of plunking the keys, his father signs him up for lessons so that he can learn to play properly. With his father’s encouragement, Raj learns notes, then scales, then songs, and finally classical pieces that his father can recognize and be proud of. But the more Raj practices and the more skilled he becomes, the less he enjoys playing, until he grows up and stops playing altogether. But when his father becomes ill and asks Raj to play for him, will Raj remember how to play from the heart? Age 0-8
