A Series of Unfortunate Events – The Wide Window by Lemony Snicket

Dear Reader,

I am sorry to say that the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and the one you are holding may be the worst of them all.

If you haven’t got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this audio will probably fill you with despair.

Raising a Reader with Big Ryan

Children ages 3 through 6 with a caregiver are invited to join us for a fabulously fun workshop focused on storytelling and literacy.

Join Big Ryan of Big Ryan’s Tall Tales for a six-week program sponsored by the South Shore Community Action Council. Meeting dates are January 30, February 6, 13, 27, March 6 and 13 at 10:30. This is a drop in program, no registration necessary!

The Perfect Score by Rob Buyea

The Perfect Score by Rob Buyea tells the story of a group of sixth graders   who dread the upcoming standardized tests and endeavor to create a  plan to game the system.  Randi, Gavin, Scott, Natalie and Trevor have tested each other over the school year, but come together in this fast-paced novel as they bond over setbacks, new situations and consequences.

*The Kingston Public Library Night Readers recommend this book for ages 9-12.
