Congratulations to everyone attending, and we will see you on Friday July 19th at 7pm.
The cookbooks live in the nonfiction section at J 641.8 and are great to look over for something new and tasty to eat. Try out different recipes for desserts, sandwichs, soups, and snacks or even cook up a main course dish. There is even a guten free cookbook for those with special dietary concerns.

This is a sweet and simple story about friendship and the importance of being a good neighbor. Panda and Pandora, who live at numbers one and two Bamboo Gardens, are eager to meet. However, both are very shy and cannot find the courage to say hello. When winter comes to Bamboo Gardens a snowball changes everything...
Preschool aged children will enjoy this tale.

After a day filled with spelling tests and following the rules, a young girl becomes a princess. While there is plenty of pink to go around, this is not your typical princess picture book. Filled with bravery, compassion, and a sense of adventure, the young princess faces various emergencies from fire-breathing dragons to trolls crashing the ball. It is "princess to the rescue!" This self-empowered young girl takes charge of each situation saving the kingdom, "as usual." Too bad it was all a dream, or was it?
A great book to share between mom and daughter as the young girl's mom makes a queenly appearance in most escapades. Recommended for princess fans ranging from PreK to first grade.

Due to the large number of registration requests for Movie Monday: Wreck-it Ralph, we will now be showing the movie twice.
On Monday, June 10th, those that registered first will be viewing Wreck-it Ralph at the original time of 2:00 pm.
The additional viewing of the movie will occur earlier at 10:00 am, and will be for those who submitted registration requests after the original time slot had been filled.
Email reminder notices will be sent out with the time of the movie your child has been registered for. You may contact the Kids World desk to verify your child's registration.
As with all programs, priority goes to Norridge and Harwood Heights cardholders. Only children who are registered have guaranteed seats. Seats are guaranteed until 10 minutes after the program has started. After that period, seats become available to anyone on a first come, first served basis.
If you have registered for the program and know you will be unable to attend, please contact the Kids World desk to cancel.
Sixth graders Ian, Kendra and PJ think that the school camping trip is going to be a piece of cake. They have no clue that they are going to spend most of their time lost in the woods, no cell phones, no food and no help. It feels like they will never find another human being again. Unfortunately, that is not the case when the trio stumble upon an abandoned cabin. There are plenty of people there, zombies are a kind of person right? On the run from the ravenous undead (these are definately not fluffy bunny zombies) the trio find that zombies are not as brainless as TV makes them out to be.
This is the first book in the Gravediggers series that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Beware though, it is not for the faint of heart. If you don't enjoy reading about rotting reanimated corpses this is not the book for you. If you love the Goosebumps series and are looking for something a little longer this book is for you.

Registration for all of the Kids World summer programs is now open.
Come to the Kids World desk to sign up for Summer Reading, where you keep track of how many minutes you read. Come in once a week starting June 10th to receive a prize. Get up to five of the small prizes with additional prizes if you read 500 minutes by the end of July.
Those going into 4th, 5th, and 6th grade may also pick up the Library Lockin Permission Form at the Kids Desk if they would like a chance to attend the July sleepover event. Remember, there are no guaranteed spots. 50 names of those that turned in the permission form will be pulled at random. All permission forms need to be turned in by June 28th in order to be eligible to participate.
To sign up for all the other summer programs, you may stop by the Kids Desk, or register online.
A young teacher, James Naismith, was forced to take over a gym class with students so out of control two teachers had already quit! When all other sports proved to be too rough and aggresive, Naismith created his own sport: basketball. A great example of perservance and learning from not only failure but past events. Second and Third graders might enjoy reading this nonfiction book on their own, but the ratio of words to pictures allows this book to serve as a great read-out-loud for a younger sports fan.
