Mrs. Dalloway's Books, School Benefit Weekend!

This weekend, November 13 and 14, Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore is hosting a school benefit for Cragmont Library!

Mrs. Dalloway's will reimburse the library for 20% of purchases made by Cragmont families! Get some holiday shopping done and bring your receipt into me, Mrs. Overlid, in the library by November 30th. We will use the funds to purchase new books and replace our favorite titles.

Books make fabulous and rewarding holiday gifts, here are some titles that Cragmont kids will no doubt love to receive wrapped up with a bow!

Chapter Books
  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth by Jeff Kinney: Of course, the newest installment of the Wimpy Kid series is sure to be on the top of wish lists!
  • The Heroes of Olympus, The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan: This new series keeps our favourite people from Percy Jackson and introduces some Roman gods to go along with Greek mythology. Another sneakily-educational hit!
  • The Popularity Papers by Amy Iganatow: Reviewed as Diary of a Wimpy Kid with more girl appeal, this brand new series is written as journal entries between two 5th grade best friends.
Picture Books
  • Cooking with Henry and Elliebelly by Carolyn Parkhurst and Dan Yaccarino: Let's pretend we are hosting a cooking show with this sweet and funny story about a brother and sister cooking together (with recipe included)!
  • Llama Llama Holiday Drama by Anna Dewdney: One of my favorite picture book series, little Llama appears in his first holiday themed story.
  • Knuffle Bunny Free by Mo Willems: Good news/bad news for Knuffle fans. Good news, Knuffle Bunny is back for a third adventure, this time on a plane! Bad news: This could be Trixie's last Knuffle story.
