News week of 16 June 2017
Here we are half way through the month of June!
On my days off I’m waging war with a beaver who spent the winter in my back dock. Pulling the dock out of the water, with the assistance of a young neighbour, as the poor beaver swam along behind, was a hard afternoon’s work.
At the bookstore, the shelves are filling up with stock for the summer as we look forward to the return of the summer residents and tourists.
The summer newsletter is being printed and we look forward to sharing with you all of the books we most enjoyed reading this past year.
School is about to end for the year and the kids will be let loose – some of them landing on grandparents for a good time to be had by all. We know we need to keep them busy and to help you we have a few suggestions. There are a couple of good books of indoor and outdoor activities, for all ages.
To encourage the little ones to become keen birders we have a book, binoculars, a bird ID list and activity poster all for $22.99 from PBS Kids.
There are several lovely new picture books about the wonders of the great outdoors including the beautifully illustrated All Ears, All Eyes for even the youngest little ones. An Author’s Odyssey is the most recent in Chris Colfer’s The Land of Stories series for young teen readers.
Let us help you choose just the right books for the kids to keep them happily making discoveries and reading all summer long.
