Go plant a tree with this week’s #BookFaceFriday!
For every Nebraskan, the holiday we hold dear to our hearts is upon us, it’s Arbor Day! Celebrating the trees shouldn’t just be for one day out of the year. Here at the library, you can explore Arbor Day any time with a wide variety of great books! Get kids involved in the conversation with picture books like “If I Were a Tree” written by Andrea Zimmerman and illustrated by Jing Jing Tsong (Lee & Low Books, 2021). We even have a book written by the Arbor Day Foundation available to readers, “Now is the Time for Trees!” Nebraska OverDrive Libraries has a huge collection of nonfiction work and children’s books, including biographies and autobiographies, memoirs, self-help books, study-aids and workbooks, reference titles, travel books, and so much more.
“With enchanting visuals, this contemplative picture book demonstrates not only what nature can offer but also the reward of new perspectives.— Booklist

This #BookFace is caught in a sticky situation…
And this day started out so well! If you’re looking for the best advice on how to remove gum from your hair, maybe skip reading “On Account of the Gum” by Adan Rex. If you’re looking for a good laugh, this is your book! It’s available as an eBook from Nebraska OverDrive Libraries. Nebraska OverDrive Libraries has a wide variety of children’s books, from picture books to to youth adult titles, and more.
Conversational rhyme, cascading action, and dramatic page turns create a story of early-morning, get-ready-for-school chaos. Gum-wrapper endpaper illustrations collaged under a bubble gum-pink wash set the tone for escalating silliness . . . [On Account of the Gum is a] gloriously giggly tale glued together by a glob of very gooey gum. –Kirkus Reviews, starred review
