Welcome, 2018!

And, if you're looking for a good mystery series to cuddle up with on these cold January days, check out the series - we've got the whole series 1 -12 in paperback and GLASS HOUSES in hardcover. Here's Noel's take on HEARTWOOD HOTEL by Kallie George & Stephanie Graegin is about a mouse named Mona. Mona got stuck in a storm. Then she found HEARTWOOD HOTEL. She was looking for a home. Why did Mona look for a home? You have to read to find out. She will go on lots of adventures. Some dangerous ones, too! My favorite part in the book was when Mona got the wooden key because, she lost her suitcase, and the top of the key was shaped like a heart. She had a carved heart in her suitcase. Bookwoman's Pick: WISHTREE by Katherine Applegate is an amazing story, aimed at middle grade students but with a timely message for all ages. Red, the teller of the story, is a giant northern red oak who has been observing his neighborhood for over two hundred years. He's more than a tree; he's a community - providing a home for all kinds of critters, a gathering place for seekers and a repository for the wishes of the people living in the neighborhood or just passing through tie to his branches. Simple, graceful, lyrical and inspirational, it tells the story of a tree and a crow who open the eyes of their human neighbors to acceptance, generosity and kindness.
