Adele and her brother Simon are coming to America from France to visit their Aunt Cecile, who takes them on a train trip to see the United States! Simon is more interested in seeing all of the sights than in keeping track of his belongings, which become lost from New York City to San Francisco. See if you can find what Simon lost in each picture. The detailed drawings and sweet story will delight readers of all ages, but particularly those ages 4-8.
In “When It Snows” by Richard Collingridge, readers join a boy and his teddy bear on a magical adventure that only happens when it snows. A sweet story with beautiful illustrations, this is a must read for snow lovers of all ages–but especially those ages 3-6.
In “Each Kindness”, award winning author Jacqueline Woodson and amazing illustrator E.B. Lewis have made a wonderful book about how treating people with kindness can help everyone. Maya is a new student and different from her other classmates with her hand-me-down clothes and old- fashioned toys. Maya wants to make friends with Chloe and her gang of friends, but they reject her. Their teacher gives a lesson on simple kindness and Chloe realizes the opportunity for friendship that was missed, and how much better it would have been if she had been kind.

On the evening of November 10, 1975 the cargo ship SS Edmund Fitzgerald got caught in an early winter storm. Facing near hurricane-force winds and waves up to 35 feet high, the ship suddenly sank to the bottom of Lake Superior. All those aboard lost their lives.
