St. Louis Today's Patty Carleton recommends some good summer reads for kids, including BABYMOUSE: BEACH BABE:
The Reading Corner: Make a big splash
Last month we focused on picture books. For more challenge to older kids, tuck these titles into their bag as they head to the pool or beach.
After all, it's not too late to "Make a Splash" in a summer reading club. Check out these titles (and more). There is a chance to bring home prizes for the enjoyment and effort.
Babymouse: Beach Babe by Jennifer Holm (Random House, 2006) is a graphic novel for elementary kids. Our squiggly-whiskered heroine heads with her family to the beach. Complete with crowds, surfboard wipeouts, sunburn and the odd shark, she is challenged to keep her younger sibling out of her fur.
