Librarian Recommended

Bunnies dancing, singing, playing, and making new friends in this adorable picture book that celebrate music and movement.  

This splendidly illustrated picture book biography of Johann Sebastian Bach will be enjoyed by everyone.  The illustrations are adorned with swirls of notes in a way that clearly shows Bach's love of music.  Combined with simple text, the illustrations will evoke questions and opportunities to learn more about this famous musician.  Recommended for grades 1-3.

To the librarian's surprise a chicken shows up to for story time one day, but she and the children take it in stride and everyone enjoys story time together. The next week even more chickens show up.  Eventually the library has so many children and so many chickens that the librarian has to get creative, because this librarian welcomes everyone who loves to read!

With spring break right around the corner many of us will find ourselves on the road to our vacation destination.  A good audiobook is a great way to keep everyone happy, and make a long trip seem a lot shorter.  I've compiled a list of some of my favorite family stories for those looking for a distraction from the journey.  Some of these families are more typical, some are magical, and some are found in different ways, but they all have a little adventure and lots of love!
