I just wanted to let you all know that on Tuesday, November 11th, we are having another G.O.O.F. Off day here at ImaginOn, which means LOTS of great stuff to do. For starters, we'll be showing the movie Shrek at 10:00 a.m. and passing out some movie trivia sheets to see if you all can keep up with how many fairytales are mentioned. At 2:00, we'll be showing The Lion King 1 and 1/2. Did I mention there will be lots and lots of free popcorn, too?
In the meantime, you ladies now have an OFFICIAL display (and yeah, it's totally bigger than the boys' display, so there) and many bookmarks (way cooler than the boys'). Please come by and visit, or send in book reviews, and I'll hook you up with some free books (just like, you guessed it, the BOYS!).
Here are some rockin' recommendations from me.
So Emmy's parents have been really distant, and her nanny is HORRIBLE. On top of that, she can hear the class rat talking (and he is NOT very nice). When Emmy discovers that her nanny may be drugging her parents to make them forget her, will she be able to save the day and get her family back? Read this book to find out.
I was a huge fan of Love That Dog by Miss Creech, and I was pleased to find this sequel in a stack of new books. It is about the same boy who is writing poetry about how much he dislikes cats and misses his old dog, Sky. When he gets an adorable kitten for a Christmas present, will he be able to resist the temptation of the fluffy cuteness? (I mean, who can resist that, really?)
