Tough call.  Luckily, it's not an either-or situation!  Jerry Pallotta, author of the ridiculously popular (seriously, it's RIDICULOUS!) Who Would Win? series will be at Hoover Public Library on Tuesday, March 10, 2020!  You have the amazing opportunity to have Pizza with the Author at 5:30 p.m. on the Library Plaza.  We will also be hosting a series of fun afternoon activities inspired by his books.  Beginning at 4 p.m., you can engage in two games, a craft, and an interactive quiz in the Youth Program Room and Kid Zone!  You do not need to register to be part of either of these events.  You also don't have to commit to both events!  You can choose one, the other, or both.  We will be serving the pizza beginning at 5 p.m.  So, no matter what you choose, you will have access to a pizza dinner.  Hope to see you there!

Human vs T. Rex = Defeat the toothy dinosaur with dodgeballs!
Human vs Shark = Knock out those powerful shark teeth!

Team Bracelet = Create a bracelet that shows who you think would win.  Team Skunk? Team Honeybadger? Team T-Rex? Team Komodo Dragon!? You choose!

Pop Quiz = How many facts do YOU know about the animal competitors featured in Jerry's books?

Top o' the morning to you!  Our next Homeschool Hub will feature the Science Lady, Jan Mattingly!  She'll be at Hoover Public Library on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 2 p.m. demonstrating St. Patrick's Day Science that looks like magic.  This will include making rainbows, turning pennies into gold, and experimenting with the color green.  This will be a very popular program, so make sure you register sooner rather than later.  You can sign up online or by phone (205-444-7830) beginning 02/26/20.

It's twice as nice when you can blog about TWO books from one of your favorite picture book creators.
