There’s SNOW Better Time to Read

A Wynk, a Blynk and a Nod to Books about Winter and Snow

When the weather outside is frightful…reading is so delightful!  Reading can be snow much fun, and there are lots of new snowy and wintry titles from which to choose. We’ve reviewed several, so why not grab a few and cuddle up for a good read.

New Books about Winter and Snow

The Bear Report by Thyra Heder

As homework, Sophie must compile three facts about polar bears. She isn’t interested in doing the assignment and would rather watch TV. As she settles in, a polar bear appears in her living room and takes her on an Arctic journey to complete her report. Even though this is a fictional story, lots of factual information is woven throughout.

 

Dear Yeti by James Kwan

Two young hikers set out to look for Yeti one day. Their journey is chronicled in a series of letters trying to coax the shy creature out of hiding. When they meet a grizzly bear, Yeti appears when they most need him.

 

First Snow by Peter McCarty

This is the newest picture book from Caldecott Honor winning author-illustrator Peter McCarty. Pedro arrives in the big city to visit his cousins and experiences his first snowfall. The illustrations are done in muted pastel watercolors and ink.

 

Flora and the Penguin by Molly Idle

A follow-up to the Caldecott Honor book, Flora and the Penguin, Flora takes up figure skating in a chillier climate. This is a wordless picture book with clever flaps throughout.

 

 

It Snows by Tamra B. Orr

Part of the Tell Me Why series, this non-fiction book answers children’s questions about winter weather with age appropriate explanations and visually appealing photographs.

Hot New Reads – January 2016

Fallen Land by Taylor Brown
Fallen Land is Taylor Brown’s debut novel set in the final year of the Civil War, as a young couple on horseback flees a dangerous band of marauders who seek a bounty reward. Callum, a seasoned horse thief at fifteen years old, came to America from his native Ireland as an orphan. Ava, her father and brother lost to the war, hides in her crumbling home until Callum determines to rescue her from the bands of hungry soldiers pillaging the land, leaving destruction in their wake. Ava and Callum have only each other in the world and their remarkable horse, Reiver, who carries them through the destruction that is the South. Pursued relentlessly by a murderous slave hunter, tracking dogs, and ruthless ex-partisan rangers, the couple race through a beautiful but ruined land, surviving on food they steal from abandoned farms and the occasional kindness of strangers. In the end, as they intersect with the scorching destruction of Sherman’s March, the couple seek a safe haven where they can make a home and begin to rebuild their lives.

 

Travelers Rest by Keith Lee Morris
A chilling fable about a family marooned in a snowbound town whose grievous history intrudes on the dreamlike present.

The Addisons-Julia and Tonio, ten-year-old Dewey, and derelict Uncle Robbie-are driving home, cross-country, after collecting Robbie from yet another trip to rehab. When a terrifying blizzard strikes outside the town of Good Night, Idaho, they seek refuge in the town at the Travelers Rest, a formerly opulent but now crumbling and eerie hotel where the physical laws of the universe are bent.

Once inside the hotel, the family is separated. As Julia and Tonio drift through the maze of the hotel’s spectral […]

Last Minute Go To Gifts

It’s December 21st and you just found out your nephew’s girlfriend is coming to Christmas or realized you forgot to get something for your aunt or mail carrier. Our staff got together and came up with a few ideas for the last minute shopper.

DIY gifts can be a great money saver and something the gift receiver will truly enjoy. A bag or basket of your favorite cookies, candies or nuts is easy to personalize. You can even dress it up with a final addition of your favorite local coffee or adult brew. We have lots of DIY ideas on our Pinterest page. This is fun for an adult gift.

I personally love movie night baskets. It can include one or two DVDs, candy, drinks and popcorn. You can often find a great old movie for under $10.
Books and music are extremely easy to find and can be very inexpensive. You can personalize it by giving your favorite CD or book in hopes of introducing the gift receiver to new music or a new author. Or turn your loved one on to free music by introducing them to our website where thousands of songs can be downloaded for no charge.
A magazine subscription can be a great gift and you can often find online deals like two years for the price of one. Grab a copy of that magazine from the local store to wrap and include a note telling the gift giver they now have a subscription.
Chocolates, old fashioned candies, hot chocolate gift pack, coffee gift pack and gourmet food baskets are great last minute gifts too. You can often pick these up for a reasonable price at most local stores.
Gift cards can be very impersonal but […]
