Kids! Bring your favorite book and read to a dog! Parents: Does your child love dogs? Is your child a reluctant reader or has difficulty reading aloud? This pilot program, Paws for Reading, gives struggling readers an opportunity to improve literacy skills in a non-judgmental environment by reading to trained therapy dogs. Fun and effective, this technique helps children gain confidence and improve reading skills. Children who are proficient readers are also welcome. With enough interest, this will become a regular monthly program starting in January.

Title
The Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales
Author
David Lubar
Review
I picked up this book to encourage my 10 year old son to read for the summer reading log. He is very choosy over the books he will read and rather reluctant to read over playing on the computer or playstation. I gave him this book to read and once he started it he had difficulty putting the book down until he had finished the book in its entirety. Now my other kids are reading it and enjoying it also.  Reserve a copy!

Title
The Hunger Games
Author
Suzanne Collins
Review
"Every year in the ruins of North America, 24 teens are forced to enter the Hunger Games. Only one winner survives. Every moment is televised." Reality TV - how far is too far? Governments have been using hunger and food as a power tool for centuries and that will probably never change. This is a thought provoking look at a future North America where the government uses food and the threat of killing our children in order to keep peace. A word of warning, this is not a book for the light-hearted as there is graphic teen on teen violence.   Reserve a copy!
