Words Have Power. Read a Banned Book.

Banned Books Week is September 24-30. 2017.  Take advantage of this celebration of your freedom to read . . . anything and everything you want!  You might want to tackle one the Top Ten Challenged Books of 2016 or one of the most frequently challenged books.  Or maybe you'll choose a title that's a perfect thematic match.  I'm planning to read Ban This Book by Alan Gratz.  It is the inspiring tale of a fourth-grader whose favorite book is banned from the school library.  She fights back by starting an illegal library in her own locker.  Whatever YOU choose, rejoice in the fact that you have a CHOICE.

Find the Ninja Within Ya -- The LEGO NINJAGO Movie

I have always loved LEGO bricks.  I built all sorts of amazing (if not structurally sound) creations in my childhood.  And I've tried my hand at quite a few projects as an adult.  So, yeah, I'm a lifelong fan.  But my love of LEGO is not limited to the building opportunities.  I also thoroughly enjoy the movies.  And the newest big screen release comes out this weekend.  Are YOU ready for The LEGO NINJAGO Movie?  Me, too!

The battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors.  Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd's dad.  Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.

You may want to watch some LEGO NINJAGO episodes before you see the movie.  You can find them in the Kid Zone DVD section, under J  LEG  DVD.  Yep, we're shelving our Blu-Rays and DVDs in real alphabetical order.   If that news doesn't give you inner piece . . . I mean, peace . . . I don't know what will.
