Read Across America Picks - Day 3

by Maureen Hall, NJLA Vice President

With Read Across America swiftly approaching, the NJLA Board is highlighting stories that you can share with children in classrooms or at home. Here's our next pick, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein. It is a fun story to read.

A world-famous maker of games designs a town library, inviting several young people to an overnight lock-in at the library on its opening night. The chosen students will work to earn their way out of the building by responding to questions and using their knowledge of books and information and their willingness to work together. Written as a book for youngsters, it was enjoyable reading for this old adult!
