Laundry Day

Submitted by Ms. Brenda!
Laundry Day written and illustrated by Jessixa Bagley, is a story about two little badgers. Two little bored badgers. When Ma Badger suggests reading a book, building a fort, and fishing to help combat their boredom, Tic and Tac tell her that they’ve already done all of those things. But when Ma Badger suggests they help her hang laundry on the line, they become very interested. Once Ma teaches them how to hang the laundry, she asks them to finish the job while she runs to the market. And while Ma runs to the market, Tic and Tac hang the laundry, and everything else they can find! Tic and Tac empty the house of everything not nailed down. They’re feeling mighty proud of themselves when Ma Badger comes home. Ma Badger is a little surprised to see that they actually forgot to hang a couple of things on the line. That’s okay, she takes a few clothespins and hangs them up herself! This is a fun book to read one-on-one. There is an endless supply of things to find hanging on the crisscrossing clothesline in the Badgers' backyard. Kids will have fun searching for the funniest, or most ridiculous, thing on the line.

Best Frints in the Whole Universe

Submitted by Ms. Tess!
Learn the true meaning of frintship in Best Frints in the Whole Universe by Antoinette Portis! Meet Yelfred and Omek! They've been frints (friends) since they were blobbies (babies)! Which is remarkable considering they live on the planet Boborp, where teef (teeth) are long and tempers are short. Not like here are Earth. *WINK* These frints do everything together! They have yunch (lunch). They play kratch (catch). They even share their blurfday (birthday) gifts! Things get tense when one frint steals the other frint's spossip (spaceship) and shmackles (wrecks) it! And then one frint bites the other frint's tail off! Good thing tails grow back, and they can fix the spossip with a sturpler (stapler) and some taypo (tape). Because being frints isn't all just fun and games. Sometimes it requires patience and forgiveness. But it's always worth it, as our new alien frints teach us! Learn about alien language and culture, and maybe have a conversation about Earthling language and culture, as you read this exciting, colorful story! See this book listed in our catalog
