Review: Lilian and Noah’s Great Moving Adventure by Monika Ferenczy
An American study by the MacArthur Foundation discovered that children moved an average of 2.5 times by age 13—needless to say, the experience of packing up your family home and moving your life to a new location is widespread. While some kids may embrace this change, others will find it more difficult… and therein lies […]Read More
Review: Violet and the Crumbs by Abigail Rayner
Lactose-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, GMO-free… a decade ago, you never heard about all these different eating restrictions. But that’s when my mother was diagnosed with celiac disease—in 2010—and suddenly she couldn’t eat anything! Go to a restaurant? No chance! Nobody knew what gluten was, let alone what meals had none of it. Now, menus often have […]Read More

This book is truly a work of art. It features a bunch of wonderful poems about kids having recess and life in the Arctic. From making igloos to the Northern lights to sled dogs it depicts many of the unique elements that make the North so very special. Also look at these illustrations 😍 I really enjoyed this and highly recommend!
The books increase in difficulty at a steady pace so students are not overwhelmed with words and catch themselves reading (to their absolute delight). For the last four years, I have been using this reading program for all my beginning readers. It’s been the one program that has consistently helped the majority of my students.
As a librarian, I haven’t often come across books that teach financial literacy to kids, so when I read Three Little Piggy Banks, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Financial literacy can seem intimidating, even for adults who have been paying bills and other expenses for years and years. It seems almost impossible to unpack such a mature subject for the youngest of children, but author Pamela George deftly simplifies the subject for young children. The book provides a very basic understanding of money: saving it, sharing it, and spending it.
