There’s nothing like a cold, snowy day to curl up with a good book. Students at area schools did just that, reading Newsbee’s Picks and sending reviews to the hive. Congrats to the following students for their stellar reviews. Until next month Newsbee encourages you to keeping “Paging On.”

Book Buzz News

They’re our companions, devoted friends who meet us at the door, wagging tails, loyal eyes shining. Big or small, short haired or long, a dog really is man’s best friend. Sadly, some pups end up as strays or in shelters awaiting homes. This month, Newsbee pays homage to the people who help t…

Congrats to the students in Union town for writing some stellar reviews. Talk about making Newsbee’s day! Over the holiday break, here’s hoping lots of young readers will check out my Book Buzz Picks at Washington Public or Scenic Regional Library and send a review to the hive. Page On!

With the start of a new year, Newsbee wants to improve himself by setting a good example and striving to be the best bee he can be. That’s why he’s buzzing about his January titles, stories that will have him “Pointed in the Right Direction,” reminding him to “bee mindful,” “bee creative,” a…

Around the hive, Newsbee always drones on about how grateful he is to get Book Buzz reviews. It means a lot to your literary bee buddy to know that the books he’s suggesting are being read and enjoyed.

A book is an uncomplicated treasure of astounding merit. Unlike some gifts, it doesn’t require batteries or an electrical charge to entertain — just a simple page-turn launches us into literary adventures with a bevy of interesting characters to accompany us. This holiday season, Newsbee hop…

One of America’s greatest blessings is its diversity. Our friends and neighbors have faces of many shades and eyes of different shapes, but our gifts combine and give birth to “A Glorious Mosaic.” We are a land of immigrants; our roots may be far-flung, but we join hands as “ . . . one natio…

A nod of Newsbee’s antennae goes to Allison Gildehaus, a sixth-grader at Clark-Vitt Elementary School. Allison wrote a review on Newsbee’s September Middle Pick, “Game Changers: The Story of Venus and Serena Williams,” by Lesa Cline-Ransome.

There’s a snap in the air, in addition to Newsbee’s buzz. Fall brings a plethora of wonderful books, and student reviews that Newsbee is always happy to find in his mailbox at the hive. Fall also ushers in shorter days, making for extra time at night to dig into Book Buzz Picks. Page On, goo…

Newsbee doesn’t mind it when the bitty bees at the hive ask questions about this and that — how do hummingbirds hum, and what seeds travel the farthest in the wind? They’re just trying to figure things out, and have “Inquisitive Minds,” like the characters in his October Picks, who forge ahe…

This month, Newsbee hurtles round the bases with “Sports Books That Score.” There’s something for every taste in this spectacular trio of stories about athletes on and off the field who participate for the love of the game and the competition, establishing names for themselves, acing serves …

August signals the start of school, ushering in big changes for Buzzers and Buzzettes — and moms and dads too — sending first timers to kindergarten and packing older kids off to middle school. Newsbee knows “Nothing Stays the Same,” a lesson for bees and human bee-ings alike. We might not w…

This time of year, things are heating up, it’s scorching, and we’re wishing for a world with “Water, Water Everywhere.” Submerge yourself in Newsbee’s July Picks. They’ll float your boat on hot summer days — dip into 1, 2 or 3. You can find Book Buzz titles, past and present, at Washington P…

Congrats to Ava Fischer, a third-grader at Clearview Elementary School. Ava wrote the following review on Newsbee’s May Book Buzz Pick, “Alma and How She Got Her Name,” by Juana Martinez-Neal.

There’s no time of year students enjoy more than summer break, and Newsbee has an activity to fill your free time — reading — so you don’t succumb to a learning slump. Laze in bed with a book, lounge near the pool lost in a story or linger at the library perusing the stacks. Welcome “Summer …

It’s mucho, magnifico May, and Newsbee’s flying high about his theme for this month, “One World Many Stories.” As you “Page On” you’ll learn about children from different countries, their cultures and customs, and realize we share heartfelt commonalities that draw us close, despite our far-f…

Newsbee happily announces the Book Buzz review winner for this month is Natalie Vogel, a third-grader at Immanuel Lutheran School, Washington. Her review of “The Word Collector,” by Peter H. Reynolds was superlative – and her efforts will earn her one of next month’s Book Buzz Picks, complim…

“Bee-lieve You Can” is Newsbee’s motto for the month, and he’s chosen stellar books that mark the merits of determination. Join him in his hive-quest for the best. If we put our minds to it, we can make our wildest dreams come true, and our ordinary goals more achievable. Keep “Paging On!”
