Meet Carlos Hernandez (Author of Sal and Gabi Break the Universe)

The Dundee Library Youth Department will have a special guest author this summer!  Carlos Hernandez is a Science Fiction/ Fantasy writer for both children and adults.  His latest book is a popular and widely acclaimed children’s chapter book, Sal and Gabi Break the Universe!

PLAY at the library!

The practice of PLAY is very important to young children in building their early learning and literacy skills!  Play can help children better understand the context behind situations and stories, leading to better reading comprehension and symbolic understanding.  Play can also help children in navigating new social relationships and communication skills.
