One day, a lion walks right past the circulation desk at the library, and begins to enjoy the activities, especially the story hour. There are only two rules at the library: no running, and be quiet. Although Mr. McBee doesn't like it, Miss Merriweather says that as long as the lion follows the rules, he can stay. Soon, the lion becomes a regular at the library, helping Miss Merriweather, and charming the patrons. But when Miss Merriweather breaks her arm, the lion roars to Mr. McBee for help. The lion has broken the rules; will he have to leave forever?

'Lights Out' by John Himmelman is a MUST read for the novice camper. Counselor Jim is having a difficult time getting the Scouts settled in for the night. The boys can't seem to fall asleep. They keep imagining all kinds of creatures who are just waiting until the lights are turned out to eat them, suck their blood, or make them sick. But never fear, Counselor Jim puts all their fears 'to bed' and the boys turn off the lights and fall fast asleep. The young reader will love the surprise ending that just might get those lights turned right back on!

Lion and the Mouse
Audience: Preschool - 1st Grade
Winner of the 2010 Caldecott Medal, this is a nearly wordless adaptation of Aesop's beloved fable. Varied perspectives including panels of close-ups make this a book you want to stop on every page to examine the detail. Words are not needed to show how important friends are- big and small.
