Did you know that one out of every four elementary students in Highland Park and Highwood qualify for the federal lunch program?
The winner of the Youth Services Department's Mock Caldecott vote was Sam & Dave Dig a Hole.
The Youth Services staff held their annual Mock Caldecott vote today. Each year they choose some books which they believe will be contenders for the real Caldecott award and then they discuss the illustrations.
We'd like to thank the following generous donors who contributed to the Youth Services summer reading program. Without their support we could not have the program that the children of Highland Park enjoyed this year. Please let them know how much their support is appreciated when you patronize their businesses.
Reading Level: Grades 1 - 2
Max and Mo are a pair of school hamsters who remind us of certain library rodents we know you all love. Max and Mo share a habitat in the school's art room and watch the children participate in class. In each book they sneak out of their cage to have some fun of their own using a few basic art supplies. Each book has directions for an art project at the end. The only way this series could be made better would be if Max and Mo were gerbils instead of hamsters.
