Fancy Nancy Tea Parties by Jane O’Conner and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

Dress up in fancy clothes and play with perfect etiquette. Isn’t there something special about a tea party!

According to Emily Clede, hostess of the web series Teatime with Emily, joining to share tea has been “a symbol of friendship and hospitality” for generations. The practice dates back to the time of kings and queens, to ancient Roman emperors, and Chinese monks.” However, it is a tradition that we can enjoy, too.

Math Fables by Greg Tang and illustrated by Heather Cahoon

Math. I was never great at it. In fact, for a while math homework brought me to tears. Now, I watch my daughter face the same struggle. I am determined to break the cycle. Math is just another way to understand our world. Luckily, there are some authors who do a much better job than I do of making that clear.

Greg Tang has written eight books that the library has which all are about math. He has books of riddles and fables. While they have different illustrators, one thing that they all have in common is bright pictures.

American Flag

Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day are flag-waving celebrations when we all think about those who serve are country. For some kids, though, this awareness is part of their lives every day. They have a family member deployed. On Sesame Workshop’s website, it details their initiative to support families with members in the military.

Your library is a resource too. We have several books about kids who have family members serving overseas. These are great not only for kids who are experiencing this but also for their friends who want to understand what it is like.
