In honor of Eric Carle, you can read his most famous book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar on MackinVIA. Carle published over 70 books in his lifetime, even though he didn't start until he was nearly 40. It's never too late to emerge and become the butterfly you were meant to be.
“You — little insignificant caterpillar — can grow up into a beautiful butterfly and fly into the world with your talent.” -Eric Carle

The famed American poet, Langston Hughes, was born on this day in 1902. In addition to being a poet, Langston was also a social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist.

If you're looking for a book for Black History Month for ages 8-12, Finding Langston was inspired by his work and can be accessed on MackinVIA! Just log on to LCPS GO, click on Library Resources, and then MackinVIA.

"After his mother's death in 1946, eleven-year-old Langston and his father leave behind their quiet life in Alabama and move to Chicago. Struggling to fit in and missing his mother, Langston finds refuge at the local library where, unlike his library in Alabama, African Americans are welcome. There he discovers the poetry of Langston Hughes and a secret--he was named after this very poet whose work his mother loved."
