JUNE 2014 RECOMMENDED READING

Recommended reading for June . It can be ordered on line for you kindle or other device through the Li bray. THE PRINCE OF PEACE by William Jennings Brian , is a great little book written by one of Americas great orators. This book is a lecture he gave as to the divinity of Christ. Starting in 1904 and given in many countries. The following is just a sample of the books contents.
Our food must we understand it before we eat it? If we refused to eat anything until we could understand the mystery of its growth, we would die of starvation. But this mystery does not bother us in the dining room.
One of his analogies concerning the Divinity of Christ is about a watermelon.”I was eating a piece of watermelon some months ago and was struck with its beauty. I took some seeds and dried them and weighed them and found that it would require some 5 thousand seeds to weigh a pound; and the I applied mathematics to that forty -pound melon. One of these seeds put into the ground, when warmed by sun and moistened by rain, it takes off its coat and goes to work: it gathers from some where two hundred thousand times it own weight and forcing this raw material through tiny stem, constructs a watermelon. It ornaments the outside with a covering of green : inside the green it put a layer of white, and within the core of red and through the red it scatters seed, each one capable of continuing the work of reproduction. Who drew the plan by which that little seed works? Where does it gets its tremendous strength?
Where does it gets its coloring matter? How does it develop a watermelon? Until you can explain a watermelon do not be too sure that you can set the limits of power of the Almighty and say just what He would or how He would do it..”

    Greetings All Book Lovers, March 10, 2014

    As most of you know my father passed away on February 7th.  He's been bank rolling my non-profit book business since mom died.  I didn't know if we were going to be able to stay in business but my siblings all agree that moms vision of getting good books into children's hands at the lowest possible price was a tradition worth saving.  SO forward we go!
    For the older children ages 12 and up I have some new books.  The last one my dad reviewed before he died was BOMB by Steve Sheinkin.  It was a Newberry honor book last year but I hadn't read it.  My husband read it also and just LOVED it, so did dad.  It would appeal to older boys for sure.(5.00 13 up)  I also have Carl Hiaasens Chomp, Flush, and Hoot (Winner of the newberry medal).  All three are hilarious for boys or girls.(4.00 12 up)  Also another Newberry Honor Book from last year that I hadn't read until now is,"Three Times Lucky."  It has a few bad words in it but its a terrifically funny mystery that reads like velvet.  I do not sell books with bad language so I thought I'd give you a heads up if you want to read it first and blot out the few naughty words.  I got The Princess Academy and The Princess academy Palace of Stone back in.  I am so sorry we ran out last sale.  They are for girls ages 12 and up (4.00)  They are both the kind of books you can't put down!  On a fluke I found Avi's "Crispin The cross of the Lead".  Its more of a boys book but I sure didn't put it down when I read it! (12 up 2.50)  Also I found an oldie but goodie,"Out of the Dust " by Karen Hesse.  Its the winner of the Newberry Medal a number of years ago.  My mom MADE me read it and it still remains a favorite of mine today. (3.00 11 UP)  I have a huge selection of award winning novels for older children but only have five copies each of them so come early and partake!
    For ages 7-9 I have a new stock of Geronimo Stilton books.  They are fabulous and the children love the little pictures on each page.  They have really taken off in the United States.(7-9 4.00)  I have a new stock of The Hundred Dresses as we ran out last time.  It too won the Newberry medal and is by Eleanor Estes.  Its a book that just never goes out of style. (9 UP 4.00)  I got the Chocolate Touch back in!  It has been a favorite in our home with our boys.  Its by Patrick Skene Catling. (2.00 7-9)  I also have a new set of the Clemintime books for girls.  She is so hilarious!  Your daughters will love her.  On another note, the boys think she's pretty funny too.  We have a ton of the Magic Tree House books.  They remain the rock for readers 7-9.  There is something for everybody in this series and its very well written too!  Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen is back too.  This is a must read short little funny book.  My dad just sniffed at it when I asked him to review it but by the time he'd finished it he was converted! (3.00 9 UP)  I still have Gary Paulsens The Voyage of the Frog.  It has the word damn in the fist chapter and then it's clean for the rest of the book.  Its another exciting book for boys (9 UP 2.00)    I honestly believe that getting good readers between the ages of 7-9 is crucial.  This is the time when our children become readers!  Reading aloud never goes out of style.  My husband still reads me his favorite chapters of the books he reviews for me!  
    I haven't forgotten the picture books.  I am so excited about what I have found.  There's so many new and old titles and this note is already too long.  So sorry.  Come and browse through the wonderful picture books.  You will make new friends and find old friends lost!  Hope to see you here!
Call me if there's anything specifically you'd like me to set aside!
Much Love,
Tracine

BOOK REVIEW FOR JANUARY 2014


BOOK REVIEW FOR JANUARY
“THE LAND “by MILDRED D TAYLOR. The prequel to “Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.
This book takes place just after the Civil War. It is the story of a man who was also had a negro mistress; therefore having two families. It is very interesting book and keeps you reading. While it is classified as a young adult book I recommend it for every age . The call number at the library is T800484

Once again I thrilled as I reread Section 128 in the Doctrine and Covenants. Which gives directions on baptism for the dead. If you convert one person to the gospel and they do Temple Work for their ancestors back for 100 years in essence you have helped convert 1000 souls.

Hales Autumn Book Sale~November 20-23rd~9:00am-12:00pm OUR BIGGEST SALE EVER!~ 435-752-7253~ 1612 East 1220 north, Logan

Greetings Readers Young and Old,
    Yes it's true, we have more books than we have ever had before!  Our house is bursting with excellent reading material.
    We'll begin with the non readers.  The board books for ages 0-3 are the most expensive and hardest to find.  They also have been selling the fastest but we have a glorious selection.  For you new moms and grandmas we have plenty of beautiful books for your tots.
    I can't even begin to tell you about the picture books.  So many have been brought back into print that I knew when I was a small child.  They range in the 2.00 to 4.00$ range.  If there is something specific you  need just ask, I can usually find it.  I've included my phone number and address in the heading.  Just give me a call!
    We have such delightful Christmas selections for adults and children this year.  All the Christmas books will be set up downstairs.
    Now for the beginning readers ages 4-6 I have a terrific selection, mostly singles but still I have the Biscuit books for new readers.  I know you will find something your child will be interested in!
    For ages 7-9 I have really stocked up on the Magic Tree House Books.  They range in the 2.00-2.50 price range.Beginning chapter books are so very important for our children.  They determine whether or not your child graduates to the thicker and more exciting adventures.  I just got home from a trip to Italy and I found that Geronimo Stilton is the most read author for emergent readers in all of Italy!!  I have an excellent selection of his books but they do sell out quickly.  I also have The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Catling.  I remember reading it to my boys aloud and laughing my head off.  It's 2.00 for ages 8 up.  Also for boys I have Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen.  It's on my dads top ten list for funny books.  I am so grateful to have it back in stock. (3.00 8 up)  For girls I have The Hundred Dress!  It's my most requested book for young girls and was written by Eleanor Estes.  It's finally back in print. (4.00 8 up)  Old Yeller by Fred Gipson is back in print.  It's one of the favorites from my younger days. (2.00 10 up)  Lastly is  the CLEMENTINE BOOKS.  THEY WERE MY MOMS FAVORITE FOR YOUNG GIRLS!  (3.00 8 up)  I also have the beloved Fairy books for 2.00 each.  The 7-9 year old young ladies LOVE them.
    Now for the older readers.  I got a remarkable deal on all three of the Newberry winners this year!  They are all 5.00 each!  The winner is called The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate.  It's a story for animal lovers folks and it really tugs at the heart strings.  I loved it.  It's also good for both boys and girls.  For girls I also have The Princess Academy and The Palace of Stone by Shannon Hale.  She knows how to tell a story! (4.00 11 up)  The newest Newberry honor books are Splendors and Glooms, a magnificent fantastical novel by Laura Amy Schlitz, and Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage.  Both are for ages 12 AND up and are 5.00.  I have always loved Carl Hiaasen's books but they have been too expensive to carry.  He lives in England and writes exclusively about the Florida Everglades and saving the environment.  I lucked out and got CHOMP and HOOT for 4.00 each.  They are hysterical and impressive.  I highly recommend them!
    For the older boys I got my hands on a bunch of Rick Riordans books including The Son of Neptune in hardback!  They range between 4.00 to 5.00 and are for older boys.  For male sports enthusiasts we have a nice selection of well written athletic novels. (3.00-4.00 12 up)
    There are so many books I'd like to tell you about but I'm rambling now.  Come and see all the new reads and the old reads that are  back in print!  You won't be sorry.  Thank you so much for your support and kind words.  See you next week!

Most Sincerely,
Tracine, The Book Lady's Daughter

BOOK REVIEW FOR NOVEMBER

BOOK REVIEW FOR NOVEMBER
Like books about the way the West was settled try Gary Paulsen's books . Our library has many of them in the young adult section. Good reading for young adults and some of our older clients. “Tuckets Travels” is one of them. A story of a 14 year old boy and his capture by Indians and rescue by a Mountain Man and much more. Call No. JF Paulsen
For our more serious readers a new book at the library try Mitchell Zuckoff's “FROZEN IN TIME. AN EPIC STORY OF SURVIVAL AND MODERN QUEST FOR LOST HEROES OF WORLD WAR II “


It is now being cataloged at the library.
