Strange times

We are definitely experiencing some uncommon times, make the most of your family time and use this opportunity to read that book you've been meaning to read and just never got around to!

I'm enjoying Stranger by Keren David. 

Astor, Ontario. 1904.
A boy staggers out of the forest covered in blood and collapses at the feet of 16-year-old Emmy. While others are suspicious and afraid, Emmy is drawn to him. Is he really the monster the townsfolk say he is?
Astor, Ontario. 1994.
Megan arrives from London for her great grandmother Emmy's 105th birthday. It should be a happy family occasion, but Megan is nursing a broken heart and carrying a secret she fears might consume her.
One family. Two women. A century of secrets. A timeless love story.

Choosing books at The Book Nook

Nice and snug 

Outside The Book Nook
On a cold wet November
morning, a selection of pupils from Years 4,5 and 6, had the pleasure of spending an hour at The Book Nook choosing books for the Junior Library. Pupils chose three books each  and were kindly given a free book as they left the shop. Thank you Book Nook, we had such an interesting visit. All of the books bought will be on display and ready to borrow as soon as possible.
