The Kane Chronicles: Throne of Fire!

The Kane Chronicles: The Throne of Fire  (Book 2) by Rick Riordan comes out on May 3! 

You can reserve your copy from the library now - in the meantime, watch the trailer and visit to read a sneak peek! According to the publisher, in this exciting second installment of the three-book series, Carter and Sadie, offspring of the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane, embark on a worldwide search for the Book of Ra, but the House of Life and the gods of chaos are determined to stop them. If you haven't already, read The Red Pyramid (Book 1 of the Kane Chronicles).

Happy International Children's Book Day!

Today is International Children's Book Day (ICBD), which is celebrated annually on or around the April 2 birth date of Hans Christian Andersen. Celebrate ICBD with a trip to the library for books about children from all over the world! Children's books can help children to learn about people from other countries, learn to appreciate and respect other cultures, and learn to get along with others. ICBD is sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY). The IBBY Web site states, "International Children's Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children's books." The 2011 international sponsor of ICBD is Estonia. The 2011 theme is "The Book Remembers."
