Posted on April 26, 2017 at 12:00 AM by Lianne Flax

   Guess What Is Growing Inside this Egg?
   by Mia Posada

   Format: Tumblebook video storybook. Visit the link then search by name (just egg will work).


Have fun guessing which animal laid the egg! Older children will be interested in the animal facts (including egg incubation periods) so can reach a wider age range than some picture books.

BoW: Talk Cowboy to Me

Posted on February 15, 2017 at 9:32 AM by Lianne Flax

 talkcowboy   Talk Cowboy to Me
   by Carolyn Brown

   Available as: Total Boox ebook
   Unlimited copies, book never expires.

Adele is newly divorced and thinks that the Double Deuce Ranch would be a great place to raise her kids. However, formerly-carefree cowboy Remington thinks the same thing, as he's now caring for his orphaned nephews.

Carolyn Brown is a popular contemporary romance writer and usually sticks to a more Western theme. This is just her most recent.  Total Boox has a number of her other books, as does Freading (if you prefer that service or have a computer, they just have not yet loaded her newest book).

To learn to use either Total Boox (mobile only) or Freading (also available for computer users) see the instructions off of the Digital Book eLending page.
