    The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein! This was my favorite book when I was little...the binding was so worn, and my mom read it to me so many times I had it memorized and that's how I learned how to read! Best book ever.

Left on their own for an afternoon, two bored and restless children find more excitement than they bargained for in a mysterious and mystical jungle adventure board game. Available from all MCPLS branches.

Beautifully written, easy to read, and haunting book about truths of the holocaust and one man who survived it. Everyone should read this book.

I stumbled upon this book while on a trip to the library in 6th grade. I fell in love with it then, and still love it now. A wonderful book.

Exact feeling after reading the Hunger Games and Mortal Instruments and The Flowers In The Attic and 50 Shades

Water for Elephants. I listened to this audiobook while I was in Costa Rica riding the bus through the rain forest. So when I think about it, watch the movie, or tell people about it, I feel like I'm in Costa Rica again. It's so weird, but that's what happens.

this book lends itself to Ecocriticism splendidly. There's also this sexual undertone between the boy and the tree here that could definitely be explored.
