What’s Sally Reading?

Books Full of Ideas… Recently a discussion was held on YALSA-BK about holding a live Clue® game for teens.  One person noted that ideas on how to do this were included in RoseMary Honnold’s 101+ Teen Programs That Work (2003).  I looked through it several years ago and just took another look today.  It is a wonderful resource of ideas from those that need very little funding to those that need quite a bit.  She followed with a second book, More Teen Programs That Work (2005) which follows the same format and has many more ideas to use with teens.  The Library Commission owns both titles and you are welcome to borrow either one whenever they are here.  The publication dates show they are a tad old, but the ideas are still fresh. Hayes011Patrick Eats his Peas and Other Stories by Geoffrey Hayes begins with Patrick claiming peas are “little green balls of mushy poison.”  Mother is patient and firm, finally Patrick finds his own way to eat a few peas.  The other stories involve Patrick helping with chores, taking a bath, and going to sleep.  Told in graphic novel format the appealing illustrations convey Patrick’s energy, his tendency toward trouble and his parents’ love and patience.  Great for beginning readers. (The Nebraska Library Commission receives free copies of children’s and young adult books for review from a number of publishers.  After review, the books are distributed free, via the Regional Library Systems, to Nebraska school and public libraries.)
