Children’s Library Corner: Lionel and the Spy Next Door

Ruhama is back with another great book suggestion!  This book is out of print so look for it in the library or online: Lionel and the Spy Next Door.

Seeing good books languish on the library shelves makes me sad, so I’ve come up with a few pairings to get you to try some of these ‘older’ titles, triggering your memory with something that’s considered a classic. Today’s offering is:

If you loved Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh, then you must try Lionel and the Spy Next Door by Linda Allen!

Children’s Library Corner: Beetles, Lightly Toasted

Introducing our newest children/family literature expert:  Ruhama Kordatzky Bahr. Yes, she is related to me being my sister-in-law.

(Gianna here:  She has been incredibly busy!  I can attest!)Not only do we have double the kids in the library, but there are programs, bookclubs, and our Summer Reading Program activities in general. However, it’s still a great time to take a step back and write about one of my favorite local author/illustrators, Mr. Tall Dave himself, David LaRochelle. Read More
