Some New Books
Ms. Eileen has been busy filling out our holiday book collection. We have several new books; a bit of everything from New Year's Day to Mother's Day to Christmas. Most are on the new shelf and will eventually make their way into the holiday book carts in the front of the library. I wanted to highlight a nice series of books by Karen Katz (the author of "Counting Kisses") including "My First Kwanzaa", "My First Ramadan", and "My First Chinese New Year". They are colorful, fun, personal introductions to these holidays. By the way, Kwanzaa, a non-religious holiday that focuses on the African values of family and community, takes place this year is on December 26, while Chinese New Year is on February 14, and Ramadan, a Muslim holiday and period of fasting and focus on spiritual growth takes place in the the late summer.
