Sarah's Holiday Pick 2017: "For most people right now, the watching the news requires mental fortification.  There’s just so much negativity and horror reported every day.  This story follows one little girl and her family as they decide to fight back in the smallest yet most effective ways possible.  A touching demonstration of how even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, all you need to do is walk out your door and make your corner of the world a little better."

Sarah's Holiday Pick 2017: "We all know nothing rhymes with orange.  But have you ever stopped to think about how that makes Orange feel?  He’s probably used to not getting invited along to poetry involving grapes and pears, but what about when even Cantaloupe gets to play?  Or Kumquat?  Or Friedrich Nietzsche?  Just read it, and try not to laugh (or say “aww…” at the end)."

Cliff's Holiday Pick 2017: "What happened to Humpty Dumpty after all the king’s horses and all the king’s men put humpty back together again? He was understandably wary of climbing that wall again. Who wouldn’t be? But life on the ground is so much less exciting than it is in the sky. A book about not letting a fall, even a bad one keep you from getting back up, this is a wonderfully book from a favorite author of mine."
