Fall into a good book. Take a look at our October staff picks for some ideas!
CATastrophe: A Story of Patterns by Ann Marie Stephens
Clever! sweet cat boat adventure while entwining simple pattern and math concepts. You can also enjoy so much in the illustrations and find a dragonfly and worm that appear twenty times.
The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent
The story of a family as told through the eyes of ten-year-old Sarah Carrier. Her mother Martha is one of the first women accused, tried, and hanged during the witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. The author paints a real picture of the difficult and frightening way people lived in Puritan Massachusetts. If you think politics are a problem today, this is much much worse!
This Beautiful Day by Richard Jackson, illustrated by Suzy Lee
