At last, our super cool series comes to an end. Don’t worry, though! We’ve got lots of cool stuff coming up, so check back with us on Thursday. In the meantime, here are some books to help you finish (or start!) our Winter Reading Challenge.
Our final staff picks come from Miss Alissa, Mr. Scott, and Miss Rebekah.
Poop Happened! A History of the World from the Bottom Up by Sarah Albee J 363.7288 ALB
Have you ever wondered what people did before we had fancy flushing toilets? Or why poop is responsible for making so many people sick? Fun stories include how astronauts poop in space, and whose job it was to empty castle latrines. Learn all the gross-out facts about how bodily waste changed history!
Brian’s Winter by Gary Paulsen – J PAU
In this alternate sequel to Hatchet, Gary Paulsen tells us the story that happens if Brian hadn’t paddled out of the wilderness to safety and had to camp for the winter. Best read on a cold day in a warm house.
Prairie School by Avi ER AVI
Noah works very hard on his family’s farm, and doesn’t see the use of learning to read. When his Aunt Dora comes to teach him, however, he may change his mind about books.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our Staff Picks series as much as we enjoy sharing our favorite books with you! Please come visit us at the library, and don’t forget to color in those paw prints on your reading logs!
