Volcano Erupts! Inside My Library!

A volcano erupted inside my Library!  It was just too utterly cool.


As you may have guessed, Miss Jaymi and Sammy the Toucan covered the letter V v in their latest early literacy video.  Sammy also interviewed a teenage Cauli Le Poussin, my chick namesake, who has returned from fostering.  What a big dude he has become!  He is, however, a chick of few peeps, so Sammy has to do most of the talking.


Baby chicks grow really fast, so it won't be long before Cauli Le Poussin is running the roost, or roostering the run, or whatever it's called wherever chickens live.  Open range, I hear.  Sounds like fun.

Sammy Flies Solo

Sammy the Toucan flew solo this week in the Library's early literacy blog video, since Miss Jaymi was attending the Public Library Association (PLA) national conference in Philadelphia.  I think Sammy did an excellent job, but we'll be glad to have Miss Jaymi back next week.


Have you seen the Library's PLA contest video?


Sammy's tail feathers looked like an arm in this video, but it's just a trick of the light, I'm guessing.

Broadway Gal named a chick after moi!  I'm so egg-cited!

Tree Girl, by T. A. Barron

Searching for one's roots can be a scary experience, particularly for an orphan.  Nine-year-old Rowanna (or just Anna) discovers that the mystery of what happened to her parents--and herself--is like stumbling through a dark forest infested by ghouls.  But there are secrets to be disclosed, and the High Willow, distant and foreboding, whispers tantalizingly to Anna.  She must know the truth, but is she prepared for the price that must be paid to learn it?




Tree Girl, by T. A. Barron, is a mystical adventure for young readers ages 9 through 12. Like the author's other magical fables, this novel explores mythic encounters counterpointed against children's real-life worries and questions about themselves and their lives. It has been published in a variety of formats since it appeared a decade ago, but Evergreen Indiana has you covered. There are several copies available in the online E.I. catalog. Your copy awaits your online hold, if you have an E.I. library card.

Trains and Tyrannosaurs

Miss Jaymi has just posted her latest early literacy blog article, which covers the letter T t.  As usual, there's a video to go along with the blog.  There are books about trains, tyrannosaurus rex, and tornadoes.  If the video screen below is too small, click the YouTube logo in the lower right-hand corner to watch it on YouTube.

Heed the Unless Stone

Grown-ups and children have been enjoying The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss, for 41 years now (since it was first published in 1971).  If you haven't read it yet, now's your chance.  You could see the new movie if you want, but, for my money, the story is best told in a book.


The book is available in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.

As the Lorax warned, we should heed the unless stone.  If you'd like to learn how your grown-ups could help you make your own unless stone for your garden, visit this web site.  The stone looks like this.
