And Then It's Spring...

Spring break is just around the corner and I know many of you will be taking some type of vacation. To help quiet the endless "are we there yet's," check out some of the library's books, eBooks, audiobooks, and CDs. We have plenty of great books to choose from! Two new picture books just arrived that are perfect for spring.

And Then It's Spring by Julie Fogliano, illustrated by Erin E. Stead (winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal), is a wonderful springtime book, full of beautiful yet simplistic illustrations. In it, a boy anxiously waits for the seeds he planted to sprout and for the world to turn green.

Kite Day by Will Hillenbrand features a bear and a mole who notice the beautiful weather. Then bear gets a great idea: kite day! They work together to make the perfect kite to fly, but like most spring days, the weather turns stormy and the wind catches the kite! Bear and mole are worried until they see how their kite helped someone else.

If you run out of time before you leave, use our mobile website to locate eBooks and download directly to your device. Don't forget to find books for yourself as well! Who knew you could use the library while relaxing at the beach? Guest post by Amy A.
