Kindergarten to Second Grade
Madeline Finn and the Library Dog
Madeline Finn does not like to read, especially out loud.  But Bonnie the library dog is a patient and gentle listener who lets her read slowly and keep trying, even when she makes mistakes.  Complete with endearing and comforting illustrations by Lisa Papp, Madeline Finn and the Library Dog is an inspiring and comforting book for less-confident new readers.

Third Grade to Fourth Grade
Once Upon an Elephant
From slowing wildfires to planting seeds, one animal is the true superhero that keeps the African savanna in balance. Elephants dig to find salt that other animal lick, their deep footprints collect water for small creatures to drink, and they eat young trees to keep the forest from overtaking the grasslands. In every season, the elephants are there to protect the savanna and its residents but what would happen if the elephants were only once upon a time?

Read along to discover the important role this keystone species plays in the savanna and explore what would happen if the elephants vanished.

Fifth Grade to Sixth Grade
The Misadventures of Max Crumbly: Locker Hero
A brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renee Russell! Introducing Max Crumbly!

Max Crumbly is about to face the scariest place he’s ever been: South Ridge Middle School.

There’s a lot that’s great about his new school, but there’s also one big problem—Doug, the school bully whose hobby is stuffing Max in his locker.

If only Max could be like the hero in his favorite comics. Unfortunately, Max’s uncanny, almost superhuman ability to smell pizza from a block away won’t exactly save any lives or foil bad guys…
