“Becoming” by Michelle Obama. From Random House Large Print.

As First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama established herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world and dramatically changed the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives. 

In her memoir, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.

“Pandemic” by Robin Cook.  From G.P. Putnam’s Sons.

When an unidentified, seemingly healthy young woman collapses suddenly on the New York City subway and dies upon reaching the hospital, her case is an eerie reminder for veteran medical examiner Jack Stapleton of the 1918 flu pandemic. 

Jack autopsies the woman within hours of her demise and discovers some striking anomalies: first, that she has had a heart transplant, and second, that, against all odds, her DNA matches that of the transplanted heart. 

Jack must race against the clock to identify the woman and determine what kind of virus could wreak such havoc--a task made more urgent when two other victims succumb to a similar rapid death. 

Kid’s Corner

“Cookies! an Interactive Recipe Book” bBy Lotta Nieminen. From Phaidon Press.

Simple yet factual recipe text takes readers through the steps of baking cookies, from combining the dry ingredients to pulling fresh cookies out of the oven, while the interactive features invite them to participate in the process.

Move the sifter from side to side to separate the flour, turn the wheel to mix the batter, pull the tab to crack the egg, slide the oven tray out, and more!

One hundred percent adult-free, danger-free, and mess-free - baking cookies has never been so independent!
