Brandon Tells Us About Leprechauns! And the Library's Situation

Hey, one and all, sorry not to have posted for so long. I've busy here and haven't had much time for blogging. However, I ALWAYS have time to hear from you! We just got a review from our good friend Brandon. Let's hear him:

Leprechauns Don't Play Fetch
By Debbie Dadey & Marcia Thornton Jones
I enjoyed this short book. It was a silly book about a so-called Leprechaun who owned a pet store and was afraid of dogs. a group of kids thought that he was a Leprechaun because of the rhymes he told them to convince them to buy useless things. It's a great St. Patrick's Day reader. I would recommend this book for early readers or for older kids who just want a short book to relax with and read quickly.

Review by Brandon, age 10

Thanks, Brandon! This book is one of the Bailey School Kids series, which are a whole lot of fun. I read one called Dragons Don't Cook Pizza, which I really enjoyed. Brandon is right--these books are good for early readers or older guys who want something short and good. That's why I call it a Good Quick Read. If you want to find out about other Good Quick Reads, click on that label under this post or find them under this list on the left-hand side of the page. Keep writng in to us, Brandon, and don't forget to come by the Imaginon library and get your free book. (hmm--Brandon--good Irish name!)

Here's an update on the library's situation. The County Commissioners voted last night to restore about half of the money that was going to be cut. The city of Charlotte and the other towns in Mecklenburg County may add enough for the library to get 70 % of the money we need. We should know for sure by the end of this week. That means, of course, that we won't be hit as hard as we thought, but it also means we still need your help. Click here to see what you, your family, and your freinds can do. Please take time to look at it. This is a time when all the reader out there need to speak up and say how much the library means to you! We want to keep providing you with good stuff, so take a look and see what you can do. And thanks for all the support you've given us so far!
