FEATURED SERIES CORNER
Are you a fan of Diary of a Wimpy Kid?
If you are, you’ll love Stick Dog.
The sixth book, Stick Dog Slurps Spaghetti, comes out October 4th. This story is about how Stick Dog searches for a rope to play tug-of-war and when he can’t find a rope he finds spaghetti. It is a hilarious adventure I think you will enjoy reading along with Stick Dog’s five other books. Check out what Stick Dog books are in your library.
DID YOU KNOW?
Ten new series were added to the LS2 Kids catalog.
The new series include: Alvin Ho, Dragon Masters, Hey Jack!, Mercy Watson, Mouse and Mole, Pokémon, Posey Princess, Sophia Martinez, Thomas the Tank Engine, and Wings of Fire. Have you read any of the books in these series? I love Mercy Watson, and Wings of Fire is becoming a fast favorite.
MY FAVORITE THINGS
Have you played Pokémon Go yet? The game is available in six different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. It is fun to play with a team, but you need to be careful. Make sure you pay attention to everything around you and don’t talk to strangers.
I usually play the game for just a few hours a week and I have fun tracking down all of the characters in my Pokédex. I found Pokémon likes the places matching your surroundings. You can find Water-type Pokémon at the beach and Grass-type in an open field. Many libraries are Pokéstops where you can stock up on supplies. While you are at the library, don’t forget to check out some Pokémon books to learn more about the characters.
