Title: I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
Author: Francis Ray
Description: Madison Reed, popular talk show host and America’s darling and her husband, well-known TV correspondent Wes Reed is everyone’s idea of the perfect couple. But now after the loss of their child, they became no more than polite strangers, maintaining the facade, revealing only picture perfect happiness. But Madison’s world is turned upside down when Wes is critically injured in a car accident and a woman is killed. Before he dies, Wes confesses that the woman who was killed was his mistress—and that he is the father of her nine-month-old daughter, Manda. He begs Madison to raise the child. Unsure if she can, Madison struggles to take charge of her fate and put her life back together. Overwhelmed, she accepts the help of Zachary Holman, her husband’s best friend, only to discover that his life is also shrouded by lies. Can she forgive and forget—not just once, but twice? -Dust jacket

We’ll be doing a course in colors for storytime this month and into October! Today we’ll talk about all the colors starting with I Know a Wee Piggy by Kim Norman as a pig runs through all the colors at the fair! In Yesterday I Had the Blues by Jeron Ashford Frame we see how colors and emotions are connected.
The first color in the Rainbow is red! So we can’t forget to read Little Red Riding Hood by Jerry Pinkney, everyone knows this classic about a little girl on her way to grandma’s and a sneaky wolf. Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney is about a little llama who gets upset during bedtime.
Brontorina by James Howe is about a big orange dinosaur who just wants to dance. While in Oh, No! By Candace Fleming we find out what happens to a tiger who catches a frog in a hole.
With Yellow, we’ll read Greetings, Sun by Phyllis Gershator and learn how to say good morning. Then we’ll follow the adventures of The Little School Bus by Carol Roth as it picks up students.
