Attention local teachers and families with children in grades K-8!
If your child (or a student in your class) would like to enter the Friends of the Northeast Library's children's book review contest, there is still time. The entry deadline, originally Dec. 1, has been pushed back to early January to allow for more entries.
Children in K-2 may make a drawing to represent what they like about a favorite book or write a review, while children in grades 3-8 may write a review. A prize will be given to the author of the best review in each grade.
Forms and contest rules are available from the children's librarians upstairs, and should be returned to the children's librarians as well.
Happy reading and reviewing!

Celebrating the holiday season may make readers nostalgic for the past, and that makes this a great month to talk about historical fiction. If you love the Wild West and rip-roaring adventure, with just a touch of sadness, then The Devil’s Paintbox by Victoria McKernan may just be the book for you. If you would like to learn more, than read my summary and review below.
