 A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd 
Midnight Gulch used to be a magical place, a town where people could sing up thunderstorms and dance up sunflowers. But that was long ago, before a curse drove the magic away. Twelve-year-old Felicity knows all about things like that; her nomadic mother is cursed with a wandering heart. Felicity wants to stay in Midnight Gulch more than anything, but first, she'll need to figure out how to bring back the magic, breaking the spell that's been cast over the town and her mother's broken heart.

Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan
Lost and alone in a forbidden forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and suddenly finds himself entwined in a 
puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica. Decades later, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in 
Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California each, in turn, become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives.

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom
With its Forest Gump-like romp through the music world, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is a classic in the making. A lifelong musician himself, Mitch Albom delivers a remarkable novel, infused with the message that “everyone joins a band in this life” and those connections change us all. 


Lots of fun stuff happening this summer that you don't want to miss.

Ms. Mary is our Literacy Specialist here at SSLDL!

With school out for the summer, children are outside playing and enjoying the nice weather. Sneak in a little "school" by encouraging them to draw or scribble with sidewalk chalk, or frozen ice chalk. Make it here.
At the beach, sand can be used for making 3-D letter as as well as writing into the sand itself.  Grit and mud also work well. use sticks or fingers to scratch words into soil, mud, or grit.
Scribbling and drawing are the first steps of writing and it helps develop eye-hand coordination. In the mind of a toddler or preschooler, these scribbles may represent a grocery list, story or their name.  Ask prompting questions about their scribbles.  This conversation will validate their efforts.


The Friends Book Room, located just inside the library entrance to the left, is a place where you can find terrific deals on all kinds of books, music and movies—and each purchase you make goes toward supporting the library!
