Let’s Go LEGO Schedule Update

Previously it was held from 2:30-3:30pm. We hope that this change means that you’ll all have more time to chat and browse the library for books to take home following each session!

Above World is an exciting book, full of emotion and surprises. It makes you feel like you are actually inside the book! I think that it is definitely worth reading. it is the first book in the series out of three. I reccomend it for 10 years and up.

Kids’ Club Review by Nathalie: Fire girl

Fire girlFire girl, by Matt Ralphs

This is a very exciting book that varies from magic animals, known as farmiliars, to demon hunters. When you read it, you almost want to be sucked right into the book! I reccomend this book for 10 years and older.

Kids’ Club Review by Petra: Small and tall tales of extinct animals

Small and tall tales of extinct animalsSmall and tall tales of extinct animals, by Hélène Rajcak

I thought it was a really interesting book but a bit sad reading about all animals that are now extinct. But on the whole it was a good book. The pictures were really good and very fun to look at, and you were easily able to imagine what the real animal would have looked like. It had lots of facts and you could use it to help you write a whole project.
