The newest Disney animal documentary is hitting theatres this weekend, just in time for Earth Day.  Monkey Kingdom is narrated by Tiny Fey and features music by composer Harry Gregson-Williams (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Shrek)  It also features blonde-bobbed monkeys.  The star is Maya, a new monkey mother who is introducing her son Kip into the family as well as dealing with a sudden change of address in the jungles of South Asia.  There are also special cameos by a mischievous mongoose, langur monkeys, leopards, and monitor lizards.  Want to learn more before or after you hit the movies?  Take a look at this educator guide and this family activity pack.  You can also find tons of great books in the Hoover Public Library's Kid Zone.  Just look for Dewey Decimal number 599.8 or 599.88.

Kimberly Willis Holt, National Book Award-Winning author of When Zachary Beaver Came to Town, has a new book out this week.  It is called Dear Hank Williams and is told entirely through letters to a country music legend.  Take a look!

"It’s 1948 in Rippling Creek, Louisiana, and Tate P. Ellerbee’s new teacher has just given her class an assignment—learning the art of letter-writing. Luckily, Tate has the perfect pen pal in mind: Hank Williams, a country music singer whose star has just begun to rise. Tate, along with her great-aunt and great-uncle, listens to him on the radio every Saturday night, and Tate just knows that she and Hank are kindred spirits."
