Kudos to Ray Hanners for sealing the leaks in the Little Library. In the next few days, the library will be re-filled with picture books for Passover and all about Israel, as well as chapter books galore: fantasy, historical fiction, graphic novels and more!
PJ Our Way Book Review
Check out some reviews on PJ Our Way selection How I Became a Spy by award winning author Deborah Hopkinson.
  • Here’s a peek at the wonderful books being mailed to PJ Library subscribers from age 0-8 this month.

  • PJ Our Way kids have until the 10th of the month to log in and choose their next middle grade book or graphic novel.

  • Purim was made for carnivals, parades, parties, and performances. PJ Library’s Purim Hub has a huge supply of ideas for family activities, crafts, recipes, holiday history, and more.

  • It’s a good time to make sure you have PJ Library's gorgeous Haggadah. This family-friendly guide to the Passover seder is designed to make the experience engaging for everyone at the table, even those crawling around under it. See PJ Library's website to download the free interactive version (available in multiple languages).
