Fabulous New Titles

You are familiar with this, right??  Then you've got to see THIS!!!  Rob Scotton is amazing - his stories are hilarious, kids love them, and his illustrations just top them off!  Splat the Cat is no exception - and this one is perfect for the first-day-of-school-jitters.  We laughed out loud at this one - and it is sure to be in my Story Hour reads this fall.

Another wonderful find??  Susan Jeffers', My Chincoteague Pony.  First of all, Susan Jeffers is another author/illustrator that you absolutely CAN NOT go wrong with.  But this story is amazing - it is a true story of a little girl that wants her own pony.  (Every little girl's dream!!)  It is touching, it is one you will be recommending over and over.  AND I LOVE the ending - it is one of those wonderful - pay-it-forward stories.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
