The Big Umbrella

by Amy June Bates and Juniper Bates

This one is a great book! It's a new publication and has just come out in February this year. It's for ages 4-8 years (or younger...or older).


There are just some books that are wonderful, and this is one of them. The idea is simple; there's an umbrella by the door that has large, wide arms. It will cover everyone while the rain pours. It is kind and it is useful and no matter who you are, tall or short, big or small, the umbrella will cover you too.


This book is such a fabulous metaphor for love and kindness. A great read and very clever!



The Girl in the Locked Room 

by Mary Downing Hahn


Due for publication in September this creepy read is aimed at the 10-12 age range. 


The the story is about Jules who moves with her family into a home which her father is commissioned with renovating. It's old, its abandoned and it's just plain weird. The house has a haunted past and unless Jules and her new found friend Maisie can help the girl locked in the room on the third floor, the hauntings will continue. Can Jules and Maisie help to reveal the events of a troubled past in the house and can they help to free the ghost in the closet?


The book has all of the elements that your ten-year-old R.L. Stine reading self would have loved, from strange sounds, violent endings and creepy dolls, this one is a classic and Gothic ghost tale for young readers.

All programs are free and open to the public.  For more information please call  832-559-4200 or log on to www.hcpl.net.
