March Recommendations for Kids


The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - Winner of the 2009 Newbery Medal. Nobody Owens, or Bod as he is known, is raised in a sprawling graveyard and educated by a colorful assortment of ghosts. His mysterious guardian, Silas, belongs neither to the world of the living or the dead, and sometimes leaves Bod to the care of Miss Lupsecu, a terrible cook but loyal friend. Bod's many adventures span being kidnapped by ghouls, attending a school for living children, and learning to haunt and fade. Threaded through the tale is the threat of the man Jack returning to finish his attempt to kill Bod's entire family.

Footprints in the Snow by Mei Matsuoka - Wolf is horribly offended; all of the wolves in storybooks are nasty, scary, and greedy! He decides to write a story about a NICE wolf—can he overcome his wolfish wants? An amusing read aloud for the younger set.

Topsy-Turvy Bedtime by Joan Levine - Arathusela does NOT like to go to bed. One night she is allowed to be in charge of putting her parents to bed. Surely every child has dreamed of such an opportunity. Check this out for a fun bedtime read.


Listen to the Wind: The Story of Dr. Greg & Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and Susan Roth - The story of Greg Mortenson's first building project in Pakistan. His book for adults, three cups of tea: one man's Mission to promote peace. A child's version of the inspiring NY Times bestseller.

Our Living Earth: A Story of People, Ecology, and Preservation by Isabelle Delannoy - What does it mean to go green? This heavily illustrated book details the ways in which people affect their environment, and how a more stable balance can be achieved.
