Summer Reading

Great time at Summer Reading. The theme was “Animal Hero’s”. We looked for lost kittens (pompoms hidden throughout the library), shared animal stories, read the book “Goliath: Hero of the Great Baltimore Fire”, (Goliath was a Percheron trained to pull a fire wagon.), crafted our own horse shoe, and ate sliced apples!

Next Wednesday, the theme will be local hero’s. More fun to be coming! See everyone at 10:00 am.

Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

I chose to read this book for book club.  The theme was “A Book That Became A Movie”.  I wanted to be different is why this book was chosen!

The story centers on two men traveling on foot in search of a promised job.  The smaller man, George, is smart, understands life, and is stuck with a promise to watch and care for the other man.  Lenny has problems, violent problems that cause the pair to keep on the move.

If you don’t remember the ending to this high school required (Yes, I read it in high school!) book, check it out.  Only have to read the last chapter to understand what the story is about.  I didn’t like it then and do not like it now. Cannot image the movie being any better!
