Summer Questers of all ages: did you choose to travel through the forest by water rather than through the trees? You can choose from all sorts of water books.
Like science? Find books about water itself (surprise!). Go to 546.22 and look for books such as A Drop of Water. Look for bubble shapes and molecules in amazing, beautiful motion. Try some some of the experiments. It is hot, 100F, today - a good time for doing wet, very wet, science. How to make a paper water bomb.
Books about rivers, lakes, oceans are close by - walk a few steps to the right, to 551.4 in either the J room or the adult aisles.
Interested in life on the rivers? Young (and old) adults - find Hodding Carter's Lower Mississippi or Twain's great Life on the Mississippi, or even Beitzell's Life on the Potomac River. Fiction? Make friends with Horatio Hornblower, Huckleberry Finn, Pi, Red Fox, Captain Hook and Amy.
Perhaps creatures that live in the water interest you. Jellyfish? 593.53 Whales? 599.5
Don't forget pirate books. We have some interesting ones such as the Piratepedia. Most are sailing about in 910.45, the magic number for seafaring adventures.
Do you have other ideas? Rain? Snow? Fishing? You can spend the entire summer reading just water books if you wish.Posted by library at August 8, 2007 06:29 PM
