Top Ten Tuesday: 2021 Reads I Still Want to Read

 This week's topic is books from 2021 that I still want to read - this is a large list. Every year, so many great looking books come out and it's hard to read them all. Here are some still on my reading list.

Martin Luther King Jr Day

 I made this for my library's social media channels. We're starting to share 6 book recommendations weekly for kids, teens, and adults. I thought I'd share it here.

These are books we have in the library.

Kids Summer Reading (2): Ocean of Possibilities

  This year's theme is Ocean of Possibilities

It's another year of uncertainty - will we have in person programs? Will we do a hybrid program?  The crafts are easier to plan because you need the same pieces. 

These program ideas come from Pinterest.

Last week's post was crafts for the littles. Check it out here

This week I'm sharing some craft ideas for older kids. Last year, we did 3D animals crafts and they went out like hot cakes.

Picture Book Review: Amah Faraway


Video chats aren't the same in real life. Kylie isn't sure about visiting Amah (her grandmother) in Taipei. Kylie isn't sure...until she is. And then nothing can stop her from having a fun.

A fun story about family who live far away from each other. This clever book flips on itself half-way through and becomes the same story with different meanings. A great story to share together.

Library Recommendation: Highly recommended for your school and public libraries.
