Great Summer Reads: Bink and Gollie

Summer Reading Starts today! You can come by and sign up for summer reading. Every thirty minutes you read this summer equals a chance to win great prizes. Here is our jar that will be filled with glow in the dark stars (one for every thirty minutes read this summer). Hopefully by August 11th we will have filled it to the top!

We are also starting a new series of blog posts to recommend books we think will make awesome summer reads. Please come by or email us with books you think are perfect for reading in the summer.

Bink and Gollie by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee, illustrations by Tony Fucile

Meet Bink and Gollie, two precocious little girls — one tiny, one tall, and both utterly irrepressible. Setting out from their super-deluxe tree house and powered by plenty of peanut butter (for Bink) and pancakes (for Gollie), they share three comical adventures involving painfully bright socks, an impromptu trek to the Andes, and a most unlikely marvelous companion. No matter where their roller skates take them, at the end of the day they will always be the very best of friends. (from Random House)

We love Kate DiCamillo (Because of Winn Dixie, Tale of Despereaux, and many other great books) and Alison McGhee, so it is no surprise that we also love this collaboration with bonus illustrations by Tony Fucile! This book is the first in a series that is a great beginning chapter book for ages 6 and up.
