Picture Book of the Day

Peter Is Just a Baby
by Marisabina Russo (Author, Illustrator)

Booktalk: Peter can’t do any of the things that his big sister can. She can leap, and skip, but he can only crawl.

Snippet: I can even count to three in French — un, deux, trois — and ask for apple pie a la mode.

Chapter Book of the Day

The Way We Fall
by Megan Crewe
308 pages

Booktalk: When sixteen year old Kaelyn lets her best friend leave for school without saying goodbye, she never dreams she might not ever see him again. But then a strange virus begins to sweep through her island community. As patients start dying, the government quarantines the island: no one can leave, and no one can come back.

Snippet: Sept 2
While the ferry was carrying you to the mainland, I was on West Beach with Mackenzie and Rachel. Mackenzie had decided we should have one last summer swim before school starts tomorrow, but the breeze was so chilly, none of us ended up wanting to go in the water. So we just walked on the sand, talking and speculating about how junior year will go.
