I read Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary until my copy was completely falling apart.  (Mine looked like the middle picture at the top of this blog.)  My absolute favorite part was when Ramona theatrically cracks a hard-boiled egg on top of her head . . . except it wasn't hard-boiled.  Ramona Quimby, her family, and her neighborhood friends have delighted readers since the first title was published in 1955.  They also earned a couple of Newbery Honors and a National Book Award.  So, yeah, they are definitely classic -- old but awesome.  Add one (or all eight!) to your summer reading list!

Today is the sixth episode in our summer storytime series.  Watch it on the HPL Kids Facebook page, then use this blog to have even more fun in the Imagination Playground.

What's the official footwear of summer?  Flip flops!  I keep two pairs right by my door -- one set stars Wonder Woman, the other features giraffes in sunglasses.  I also bought a fancier, more supportive pair for my recent birthday cruise.  My friend Tiffani has practically a pair for every day of summer.  Flip flops are her signature summer look.  If you love them as much as we do, you'll surely love these activities!
