                   I WANT TO HELP! Diane Adams / Nancy Hayashi
                   Emily Pearl is a very smart girl. She can count to fourteen. She can write her
                   own name. She can tell things apart. And she's still quite sure: "I Can Do It
                   Myself!" But while she's mastered all sorts of skills, she does need a little help
                   every now and then—especially at the end of the day, when she's waiting to get
                   picked up and is just a little bit scared.

                   THE LIBRARY DRAGON Carmen Agra Deedy / Michael P. White
                   When Sunrise Elementary School advertised for a thick-skinned librarian with a
                   burning love of books, Miss Lotta Scales knew she was perfect for the job. Who
                   could guard books better than a REAL dragon?
                   Fortunately, nearsighted Molly Brickmeyer stumbles into a copy of Snuff the
                   Magic Dragon and reads the tale out loud. Her storytelling beckons the children
                   back to the library and brings them face to face with the Library Dragon. Can an
                   open book temper the flames of the school's hot-headed librarian?

                   LOST AND FOUND Bill Harley / Adam Gustavson
                   When Justin loses the special hat his grandmother made for him, he searches
                   everywhere for it. Everywhere, that is, except the Lost and Found, since he (and
                   everyone) is afraid of Mr. Rumkowsky, the old school custodian. With his
                   grandmother visiting soon, his mom upset, and the hat nowhere in sight, Justin
                   finally musters the courage to enter Rumkowsky's domain. There he discovers a
                   world of treasures — lost items generations of children before have been too
                   afraid to claim. But, deep at the bottom of Rumkowsky's giant box, Justin finds
                   something completely unexpected: not his own hat, but an identical one, lost
                   many years ago…

                   THE MONSTER WHO DID MY MATH Danny Schnitzlein / Bill Mayer
                   A math-phobic boy faces another dreaded evening of multiplication when a
                   monster suddenly appears and offers him a deal he cannot refuse. After a quick
                   signature on a contract, his problems are solved, and his homework is ready to
                   turn in the next day. At first, everything is great. But when his knowledge is
                   tested at school, his troubles begin to multiply. What did the fine print on that
                   contract read? In paragraph 7 of clause 93, "If you don't learn anything, do not
                   blame me!" When the bill comes due, will our hero have the money -- and the
                   math skill -- to subtract that wicked monster from his life once and for all?

                   MOOSHKA, A QUILT STORY Julie Paschkis
                   Karla loves Mooshka, a quilt composed of scraps of fabric from many members
                   of Karla's family. But Mooshka is more than a quilt—it comforts Karla at
                   bedtime. Each square or "schnitz," tells her stories of her ancestors and their
                   lives. When new baby sister Hannah arrives, Karla's routine is upset and
                   Mooshka falls silent. Only when Karla shares Mooshka with her sister does the
                   quilt begin to speak again and tell Hannah stories of Karla's early life.

                   RETURN OF THE LIBRARY DRAGON Carmen Agra Deedy / Michael P.

                   After years of faithful service, Miss Lotty is retiring from guarding books. But
                   before she can check out of Sunrise Elementary for good, disaster strikes.
                   Someone has removed all the books from the library and replaced them with
                   machines! It's enough to make Lotty feel …dragon-like. When she bursts into a
                   fiery rage, only one thing can make her shed her scales: assurance that someone
                   will fight to keep precious books in the hands of children. Lotty is sure she'll
                   have to stay on and do the job herself, until a surprise appearance from the new
                   librarian, Molly Brickmeyer - the heroine from THE LIBRARY DRAGON.

                           things Rose thinks are beautiful are gardens full of red and yellow and blue
                           flowers. The Birdman hands Rose some seeds and tells her they are magic—if
                           she plants them outside her window a garden will grow. Soon, just as the
                           Birdman promised, a garden appears before her eyes—a musical flurry of blue
                           and red and yellow birds, drawn to Rose's window by seed magic.

                           where Zayde may go, Rachel still can't imagine her life without Zayde in it. It is
                           only when she realizes that Zayde will live on in the love and the memories they
                           have shared that she finally begins to find some peace.

                           Tired of dodging fishwives' brooms and carriage wheels, alley cat Skilley yearns
                           for the comfort of Ye olde Cheshire Cheese, a popular London inn. When he
                           hears that the innkeeper is in need of a mouser, he hatches a scheme so
                           audacious it will surely set him up for the rest of his nine lives. Once installed at
                           the Cheese, Skilley looks forward to a life of ease. But a resident mouse named
                           Pip uncovers Skilley's scandalous secret, and the desperate cat is forced to make
                           a pact with him. The two become allies, and harmony reigns until they are
                           drawn into an intrigue involving a tyrannical cook, a strange visitor hidden in
                           the attic, and an evil tomcat called Pinch. The ensuing mayhem threatens the
                           peace of Ye olde Cheshire Cheese—and the entire British empire!

                    GO FOR THE GOAL Fred Bowen
                    Thirteen-year-old Josh joins the United, an elite travel league soccer team. The
                    team members are talented, but they are playing together for the first time—and
                    can't seem to win a single game. When Josh hears that the 1999 US women's
                    World Cup team had similar difficulties and had built a winning team by
                    working together on team-building exercises, he suggests to his coach that the
                    United do the same. At first his teammates are skeptical and progress is slow,

                    HIDE AND SEEK Katy Grant
                    After a summer cooped up in his family's store selling bait, tackle, and soft
                    drinks to tourists, fourteen-year-old Chase finally gets a chance to go on his first
                    solo geocaching adventure. Using his GPS, he uncovers the geocache—a small
                    metal box—hidden deep in the woods. Inside, with a few plastic army men and
                    a log book, is a troubling message for help in a child's handwriting. When Chase
                    returns, he finds another message in the box, this time asking for food. He is
                    curious —and worried—about the mysterious individuals leaving the messages.
                    What if they are hopelessly lost or hiding from something—or someone? Before
                    he can seek help, Chase is pulled into a complex, dangerous drama and a
                    confrontation with a father who will stop at nothing to hold on to his children.

                   When his father takes a new job, Ben must leave behind his best friend, a
                   western banded gecko named Lenny, and, worst of all, the desert home he has
                   loved and explored. Ben unexpectedly finds a kindred spirit in his new fifth-
                   grade science teacher, Mrs. Tibbets. Together they explore the varied habitats on
                   her rural property, where she introduces him to the rare Eastern spadefoot
                   toads. When Ben discovers that Mrs. Tibbets' land may be sold to developers, he
                   knows he has to do something. Ben finds a way to meet his responsibilities to the
                   people around him and demonstrates the importance of even the smallest efforts
                   to save the earth's rapidly disappearing habitats.

INTERMEDIATE NON-FICTION

                             WE'VE GOT A JOB: THE 1963 BIRMINGHAM CHILDREN'S MARCH
                             Cynthia Levinson
                             The inspiring story of one of the greatest moments in Civil Rights history as seen
                             through the eyes of four children who were right in the middle of it.
                             In 1963, the Civil Rights movement was falling apart. After a series of setbacks
                             across the south, the movement was losing direction and momentum. No
                             southern city was more divided than Birmingham, Alabama, home of the
                             infamous Bull Connor. Through the experiences of four original participants, we
                             learn the little-known story of the 4,000 black students who voluntarily went to
                             jail between May 2 and May 11, 1963. Fulfilling Mahatma Gandhi's and Dr.
                             Martin Luther King, Jr.'s precept to "fill the jails," they eventually succeeded in
                             desegregating one of the most racially violent cities in America.

YOUNG ADULT

                         ROUGH WATERS S.L. Rottman
                         When their parents are killed in a car accident, Scott and his brother Gregg are
                         sent to live with an uncle they never knew. Hurt, angry, and confused, they leave
                         a comfortable life in California and head to the remote Colorado Rockies, where
                         their uncle runs a white-water rafting company.
                         As they become acquainted with the power and unpredictability of the river, the
                         brothers discover that it is harder than they ever dreamed to master the art of
                         survival—both on and off the water.

                         THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING J.J. Johnson
                         Ever since Sarah Jones's best friend Jamie died in a freak accident, life has felt
                         sort of…random. Sarah has always followed the rules—she's always been a good
                         student, a good pal, a good girlfriend. Now what? Her grades are plummeting,
                         she and her boyfriend are drifting apart, and if she doesn't get her act together,
                         her parents might have to resort to taking her beloved dog Ruby away from her.
                         In a last ditch effort to pull it together, Sarah ends up working for Roy, a local
                         eccentric who owns a Christmas tree farm, and who might also be trying to
                         understand the rules, patterns, and connections in life. To complicate matters,
                         her best friend's brother is starting to ask questions. Will life ever make sense
                         again?
