The Stranger In The Lifeboat
by Mitch Albom

View in Library Catalog



Deeply moving book. Very spiritual about what is important in life and how we deal with difficult challenges. One line that stands out to me is "Anxiety is cured by faith" Highly recommend and will be reading more of Mr. Albom's works.

A great summer read with unpredictable twists. I love how it was set in the Outer Banks where I vacationed as a kid. Made me cry!

The Children of Willesden Lane is the true story that takes place during World War 2 about a girl named Lisa who plays the piano. She has to go on the kinder transport to England to be safe. One day she sees a piano in the corner of the room in her new home. The lady says she was waiting for a girl to come play the piano. They let her go to a piano competition to try to get into a really good music school. She does it and she's able to give a concert at the end. I like how she plays the piano really well but she doesn't brag about it. She has a lot of courage. She played the piano even when the bombs were falling.

Serafina And The Black Cloak
by Robert Beatty

View in Library Catalog



Cute YA series. I love that it’s about the Biltmore estate. Serafina has never had a reason to disobey her pa and venture beyond the grounds of the Biltmore estate. There’s plenty to explore in her grand home, although she must take care never to be seen. None of the rich folk upstairs know that Serafina exists; she and her pa, the estate’s maintenance man, have secretly lived in the basement for as long as Serafina can remember. But when children at the estate start disappearing, only Serafina knows who the culprit is: a terrifying man in a black cloak who stalks Biltmore’s corridors at night. Following her own harrowing escape, Serafina risks everything by joining forces with Braeden Vanderbilt, the young nephew of the Biltmore’s owners. Braeden and Serafina must uncover the Man in the Black Cloak’s true identity... before all of the children vanish one by one.

The King's Day Louis XIV of France
by Aliki

The King's Day is about a real king who became king when he was about 5 years old. He liked being called the Sun King after performing in a 12 hour ballet where he was the sun. He had the best robes, shoes with diamond buckles, and the longest curliest wigs. I think he looked funny. He had many palaces, many gardens, lakes, and ponds. He liked living in the country better than the city. He liked sleeping with the curtains open because he liked fresh air. People would fight to serve him and it was an honor to empty his chamber pot!

Paddington Sets Sail

This was a fun book about Paddington Bears' first trip to the beach. He swims, builds a sandcastle, and even has an adventure in the water with his sand pail and shovel. He has a lot of fun and it makes him really tired. I recommend this book to other kids that are just learning to read.
