Dr. B's Quick Picks!

Wondering what Dr. Bingman's new CLC favorite reads are? Below you will find the books sitting on his night stand. Enjoy, booksworms!




Where My Wellies Take Me...

By: Oivia Lomenech Gill


"Pippa loves staying with her Aunty Peggy. She loves going for walks, whether it's sunshiney or cold - long, wandering walks where her wellies take her. Follow Pippa into the beautiful countryside as her day unfolds, and the wildlife, animals and people she encounters are complemented by relevant poems from some of our greatest authors, personally chosen by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. Part poetry anthology, part child's scrapbook, this is a truly lavish project designed to instil a love of language in young children." (Google Books)

"The President Has Been Shot"

By: James L. Sawnson


"Swanson deploys his signature "you are there" style — a riveting, ticking-clock pace, with an unprecedented eye for dramatic details and impeccable historical accuracy — to tell the story of the JFK assassination as it has never been told before. The book is illustrated with archival photos, and has diagrams, source notes, bibliography, places to visit, and an index." (
