The Dog days of summer are still here! Since dog tales were in the spotlight last month, we would be remiss in waiting too long to mention fabulous furry felines in stories for the young and old.
The summer is sadly coming to a close and soon those weekday trips to the pool or park will be a thing of the past. Lazing around the house all day playing video games will be something you have to squeeze into your weekend activities. There’ll be a new classroom or school to get use to, new books and subjects, maybe new friends, and a lot of new homework. So let’s make these last three weeks count!
When the thermometer hits 103 degrees and you’re wrinkled as a prune from hanging out in the pool—you’re going need something new to do, right? It’s too hot go outside. You’re “vehically-challenged” and can’t really go anywhere. The buttons on your game console have lost their spring from countless rounds of Donkey Kong. Now is a great time to flex your drawing skills!
The dog days of summer are upon us! The hottest part of the summer was first named the Dog Days thousands of years ago when Sirius, the Dog Star, rose during July and August around the same time as the sunrise in the Northern Hemisphere. You might want to celebrate this special time of the year by paying a visit to your cool, air-conditioned library and sniff out all of the great dog books
