A Camping Spree With Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen

This book is a favorite in our house. It’s witty, hilarious and will get the kiddos laughing. It’s not just for the young ones either. Our 9-year-old LOVES this book! There are two others by this author that are just as good as well!

Moriah Butler, from the Milwaukee branch, reviewed this book for us!

Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis

A stick is a stick … until you use your imagination. Anything can happen when a stick is discovered, from fishing poles to battle swords. This book is short and to the point. An easy read for preschoolers. After reading, head to the trails to find out what else a stick can be.
