Book suggestions + end of the year library info

Wrapping up the year!

With five weeks of school left, this is a reminder to return overdue books to the school library. The library will close on June 8 in order to get all materials back on the shelves in proper order and in good condition. Please look around at home for any books with the Lawrence School Library barcode and return them to school as soon as possible. 

After June 8 I recommend that you look into the public library's new browsing routines, found here on their website. They will be opening for limited browsing starting June 1--just in time for summer reading! 

Book suggestions:

The Magic in Changing Your Stars by Leah Henderson 

Ailey is disappointed when a tryout for his school's production of The Wiz doesn't go as planned. He quickly has to put his disappointment aside, however, when his grandfather falls and ends up in the hospital. In a conversation with his grandfather, Ailey finds out about some special tap shoes that his grandfather entrusts him with. When Ailey puts them on he finds himself back in 1939 meeting his grandfather when he was a boy. This time travel/ historical fiction mashup will keep you turning pages. How will Ailey get back to 2010? Will his grandfather take a chance and change the direction of his life? 

Maybe Maybe Marisol Rainey by Erin Entrada Kelly

Marisol Rainey’s mother was born in the Philippines. Marisol’s father works and lives part-time on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. And Marisol, who has a big imagination and likes to name inanimate objects, has a tree in her backyard she calls Peppina . . . but she’s way too scared to climb it. This all makes Marisol the only girl in her small Louisiana town with a mother who was born elsewhere and a father who lives elsewhere (most of the time)—the only girl who’s fearful of adventure and fun. Short chapters, a fun beginning to a new series!
