Get Ready for Summer Reading at the Library

If you are like me and have children in your life, you are in the thick of a tremendously busy season: the end of the school year. Testing, concerts, recitals, graduations, award banquets, and field trips fill the calendar. It may seem a long way off with everything that is going on right now, but Summer Reading at the library is just around the corner.

Summer is a critical time to keep your child reading (avoid summer slide!), and the library wants to help children be motivated to keep reading all summer long. The first step is to visit librarypoint.org/summer.

The Body in the Woods by April Henry

If you stumbled across a body in the woods, would you be horrified like Alexis, electrified like Ruby, or panicked like Nick?

In April Henry’s The Body in the Woods, high school students Alexis, Ruby, and Nick’s first official Search and Rescue (SAR) for the Portland County Sheriff’s Office did not go as planned, to say the least. They were assigned to find an autistic man in Forest Park, but found a young woman’s body instead. Realizing that she was very recently murdered, the three students reached the conclusion that one of the many park visitors they conversed with on the trail could be the killer.

Stick Dog by Tom Watson

Look, not everyone can be a great artist, okay? The narrator of Stick Dog certainly isn’t, and he’s sick of hearing about it. So he’ll make you a deal. You don’t comment on the art, and in exchange you’ll get story about five rectangular canine friends on a quest for the Holy Grail of picnic foods: hamburgers.

Stick Dog—accompanied by his friends Mutt, Stripes, Poo-Poo, and Karen—is determined to get some of the delicious-smelling hamburgers being grilled in the park away from the picnickers and into empty doggy stomachs.
