My kids and I go to the library at least once a week. We bring home two big bags full of books each time we go. And every now and then we find a book that just stands out above the rest - one that just touches your heart or makes you laugh or really makes you think. This week we found two books like that.
The first one is a brand new book. It's called Grammy Lamby and the Secret Handshake. It was written by Kate Klise and illustrated by her sister M. Sarah Klise. It was published July 3 of this year. The suggested reading age is 4 and up. Here is a description of the book from Amazon:
"Larry is a little lamb with a
larger-than-life grandmother. She talks loudly, carries a heavy sewing
machine, and has big plans to take Larry to Tanzania and the South Seas
when he grows up. She even has a secret handshake. It’s all too much for
shy little Larry—until a summer storm blows through the Lambs’ valley,
and Larry finds an unlikely hero in his own family."
