Check out the books we are loving this week!
Pumpkin Countdown by Joan Holub
In this rhyming picture book, a classroom of children goes on a field trip to the pumpkin patch, where they count everything in sight. The book is perfect for the fall season, and an extra fun way to teach children to count backward from twenty.
The Man with the Golden Typewriter by Ian Fleming
On 16 August 1952, Ian Fleming wrote to his wife, Ann, ‘My love, This is only a tiny letter to try out my new typewriter and to see if it will write golden words since it is made of gold’. He had bought the gold-plated typewriter as a present to himself for finishing his first novel, Casino Royale. It marked in glamorous style the arrival of James Bond, agent 007, and the start of a career that saw Fleming become one of the world’s most celebrated thriller writers. This books tells the story of the man who wrote them and how he created spy fiction’s most compelling hero.
