June brought us the first days of summer and so we headed for the beach…figuratively, at least. We explored beach, ocean and sea creature themes in our books this month. We met Jacques Cousteau (the “Manfish”), Marie Tharp (the woman who first mapped the ocean floor), and plenty of other fascinating real life and imaginary characters. We also enjoyed a week of cute and funny books about Fathers’ Day, complete with bear hugs and goofy dad humor.
All-in-all it was a breezy, warm, and engaging month of reading in keeping with the summer season.
