The Hook

The lure...a 30% off coupon from a local bookstore was just the beginning. The hook...capturing some new book selections from the children's section. And I might add one can certainly lose track of time when delving into wealth of new books.
Two titles caught my attention. The first is Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates. It a charming humorous story about a dog who loves the smell of books, and the feel of them so much he decides that he has to open his own bookstore. Owning a store opens up a whole new world of book adventures he never imagined. The simply told tale has a message that will resonate with book lovers.
The second book that caught my attention was Boo Boo Bear's Mission: The True Story of a Teddy Bear's Adventures in Iraq, written by a local author Mary Kinda Sather. An intriguing part about the story besides the storyline is that the book was illustrated by military and civilian children. The story hopes to bring comfort and reassurance to children whose families are experiencing deployment anxieties. A parent guide is included to facilitate family discussions for military families who are experiencing separations. This book would also be a useful classroom tool.
I might add a 30% coupon is just a start!
Lastly,these autumn nights are perfect for moon viewing. The deep blue sky is the perfect background to showcase the creamy white beauty of the moon.
