by Ryan T. Higgins

The big bear Bruce is back and this time he has more than goslings on his plate! After taking the goslings to hibernate in Florida, he returns home in spring to find that mice had moved into his house and turned it into a busy woodland hotel.
This is a delightful as the original Mother Bruce. You can't read it with out laughing out loud! A wonderful picture book for storytime or any time.

by Lauren Wolk

This young adult novel has been compared to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mocking bird, a powerful book, beautifully written.
Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabell has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her small Pensylvania town. Until the day a new student, Betty Glengarry, walks into her class. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying seems isolated at first, things quickly escalate and a reclusive world War I veteran Toby becomes the target of her attacks.
While others have always seen Toby's strangeness, Annabell knows only kindness. Soon, she will need to find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.
This is a book you can't put down!
