Things are moving around in the Children's Room!

It seems like spring might really be here to stay, and a few collections have moved in the Children's Room.  Slim Fiction and Caldecott Award winner books are now located on the same wall as Biographies and Folk and Fairytales.

Series books are along the back wall by the windows and are being reorganized into some snazzy new containers.

New books are outgrowing their space quickly!  They are still by the round tables, but also on top of the picture book stacks.  Please come and check out a few, or a dozen!

Do you know what a fractal is?  According to Wikipedia a fractal is " a mathematical set that typically displays self-similar patterns".  This book, Mysterious Patterns is a wonderful and simple introduction to what a fractal is and how you can spot them in nature, along with some really cool photographs of fractals!  Find it in the New Non-Fiction section of the Children's Room.
