After last year's incredible winter this winter felt so easy, right? Well, we decided since we weren't overwhelmed with actual snow this year we could read about it instead. We read books about snow, ice, winter weather, winter sports and more. This theme let us really branch out, with books ranging from historical and realistic fiction to fantasy and science fiction to action and survival.
Maybe if we'd done this theme last year, while the snow was still piled high in our yards well into the spring, we wouldn't have enjoyed it so much. This year, however, the response was all positive. We all had fun catching a little bit of snowy weather without getting trapped indoors. Realistic fiction was the clear winner, with plenty of titles to choose from, but science fiction held its own too. All that said, we all agreed it was nice to be able to put the winter down and move on to spring. Maybe we'll do spring as a theme next year?
For next month we're celebrating National Poetry Month with books of poetry and novels in verse. There are some books put aside in the Children's Room or pick something on your own and come tell us about it on April 12th at 7:00 p.m. in the Children's Room.
