I'm super excited about two fabulous books I read this week. Now I know neither of these two books don't need any extra promotion, but for those of you out there who haven't heard the news, I've gotta let you know about them! The holds lists are growing, so be sure to place your holds now before the wait gets longer!!!
Elephant and Piggie are back in their latest installment in Waiting Is Not Easy! Piggie is sooooo excited to share a BIG surprise with Gerald. And of course, Gerald is too excited to wait for the surprise, and keeps tormenting Piggie to give it to him right away. Piggie insists that Gerald must wait and wait and wait. After the agonizing wait, Gerald is met with a wonderful surprise that even the reader will be truly surprised! Want to know what it is? I can't tell you. You must wait! And believe me, it is worth the wait! All of us in Youth Services are super excited about this book! Miss Jaime says, "It was deliciously awesome. Just when I thought the Elephant and Piggie books couldn't get any better, they did!" This title will be a perfect read for those of you out there who have kiddos who need a little encouragement in learning the art of patience.
The other awesome book I read this week was book 9 of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. We all know that Greg Heffley needs no introduction as he's wiggled his way into the hearts of many elementary school readers. In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, Mom Susan insists that the family take a road trip for everyone to spend some quality bonding time together. While the trip starts off with good intentions, it ends up with one problem after another. Bad gas stations, unbearable hotel rooms, seagulls, lost keys, a piglet, no cash, and a trip to the vet weren't what the Heffley family had in mind, but one page after another is guaranteed for some belly bursting out-loud laughs! I'm surprised no one around me complained about my laughing while I was reading...it was just that funny!
