It’s All About The Books!

Summer is the perfect time of year to enjoy and celebrate books.

Bring Me A Rock by Daniel MiyaresTo start things off, we’re thrilled to have our favorite local children’s book author and illustrator Daniel Miyares back at Corinth Square Learning Tree to introduce his newly released picture book, “Bring Me a Rock,” on Saturday, June 18th at 10:30am.

We got an early peek at this delightful tale of a little bug that teaches big lessons. Daniel is not only a gifted writer and artist he also delights in sharing his work with children through storytelling and demonstrations. Come celebrate this new book with us!

Dive in to Summer Reading!

Roald DahlThe matter with human beans,” the BFG went on, “is that they is absolutely refusing to believe in anything unless they is actually seeing it right in front of their own schnozzles.”
― Roald Dahl, “The BFG”

We’re loaded with summer reading ideas at the Learning Tree. Sometimes going back to what we loved as kids for our own kids is a wonderful way to share a love of books.
The BFG movie
Did you grow up with the classic Roald Dahl books? On July 1st, the talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney, and Steven Spielberg – will unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life as a movie, telling the imaginative story of the young girl, Sophie, and the giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.“It’s the perfect time to introduce a whole new generation to Charlie, James, the Twits, as well as the BFG,” suggests Beth Roberts, our Book Manager. “Our shelves are stocked with these favorites and other classic children’s books!”Beth recommends another longtime favorite series, “Choose Your Own Adventure” for summer reading. “The reader becomes part of these books, choosing the twists and turns in the plot, and the ending they want, and we have so many titles- it’s easy to get hooked!”

There are sets of titles for all ages including the “Dragon Larks” set for ages 5-8.

Highlight Hidden PicturesRemember sitting at the dentist office and reading Highlights magazine?

Highlights has come out with a fabulous selection of “Hidden Pictures” and puzzle books perfect for summer car or plane trips. In a cozy chair, by the pool, on the beach – it doesn’t matter – anywhere is a good place to pull out a summer book to read!

This summer we invite you to come read with us!
