Teddy Bear Sleepover 2016

If you missed our Teddy Bear Sleepover, don't worry. We hope you'll join us next year. In the meantime, check out these great pictures and see what kind of mischief our stuffed friends got into.

The New Neighbor by Leah Stewart

You know it is a good book when you stay up way past your bedtime to finish reading it because you just have to know how it ends. That was my situation last night with The New Neighbor by Leah Stewart.

Time and Time Again by Ben Elton is a new absorbing and thought-provoking novel that takes a look at the idea of time travel and what would happen if something were changed. British Special Forces ex-soldier Hugh Stanton is mourning the loss of his wife and two children who were killed by a hit-and-run vehicle.
