George, Winnie, Flowers, and our Reading Gnome

Hello Friends! This afternoon I added a stack of new books to Skookum's Library. Richard Scarry's Just the Right Word, Winnie the Pooh, Bears on Wheels, and Curious George.  The Counting Kisses board book is great for those little ones just learning their numbers.  For garden enthusiasts, I have included a series on vegetables, flower arrangements, and designing flower beds and borders.

Lastly, I want to thank my good friend Lisa for this belated birthday gift!  We have a new gnome in our little Skookum garden. He's a definite cutie:

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy a good book along the way!

Sedaris, Rushdie, Dubus & Summer Reading Clubs!

This past weekend I headed out to Clearbrook Library and picked up a few gems for the adults and kids!  It was a good thing too because we had several Skookum visitors today!  I am a huge fan of David Sedaris and was hooked on his work after reading the hilarious essay 'Santaland Diaries.'  I've also included an Oprah's Book Club selection 'House of Sand and Fog' and Salman Rushdie's 'Shame.'  For the kids, we have 'Dillion Dillion,' 'The Spoon in the Bathroom Wall' and 'The Knaveheart's Curse.'

The Fraser Valley Regional Libraries have a series of very cool summer reading clubs going on right now!  Head down to your local library and sign up!  There are stickers, prizes and medals to be won! How fun!

Thank you Angela for coming by!  Great to hear that your daycare kids are enjoying the books!  

Hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy the sunshine with a good book!
