Picture Book of the Day
Weird but True Weather (Weird But True Science)
by Carmen Bredeson (Author)
Booktalk: Snow donuts? Dust devils? Clouds that look like flying saucers? Can this really be true? Find out in this easy-to-read information book.
Rain: This water fell on the dinosaurs!
Rain falls on you. Rain fell on the dinosaurs. It might be the same rain. Water on Earth is used over and over. It is called the water cycle.
Chapter Book of the Day
Don’t Behave Like You Live in a Cave (Laugh & Learn)
by Elizabeth Verdick (Author) and Steve Mark (Illustrator)
Booktalk: Full-color cartoons and humorous, kid-friendly text teach kids how to make smarter choices about how they behave at home and at school so they stay out of trouble, feel good about themselves and their choices, and get along better with family, friends, and teachers.
Snippet: This book isn’t about turning you into a “perfect” person, a goody-goody, the teacher’s pet, or some kind of robot-kid. Instead, it can help you take a look at how you act and how other people react. Do your actions help you–or do they hurt you?
