Expand the sharing movement to your community with Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds—your complete source for building tiny sharing structures, including plans for 12 different structures, step-by-step photography and instructions, inspirational examples, and maintenance. Around the world, a community movement is underway featuring quaint landscape structures mounted on posts in front yards and other green spaces. Some are built for personal use, as miniature sheds for gardeners or as decorative accent pieces. More commonly, though, they are evidence of the growing trend toward neighborhood organization and community outreach. This movement has been popularized by Wisconsin-based Little Free Library (LFL), whose members currently include 75,000 stewards seeking to build community togetherness and promote reading at the same time by sharing books among neighbors. LFL has inspired builders to use similar structures to share things like CDs, food, garden tools, and seeds in the community. Produced in cooperation with Little Free Library, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is the builder's complete source of inspiration and how-to knowledge. Illustrated throughout with colorful step-by-step photography and a gallery of tiny structures for further inspiration, Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds covers every step: planning and design, tools and building techniques, best materials, and 12 complete plans for structures of varying size and aesthetics. In addition, author and professional carpenter Phil Schmidt includes information on proper installation of small structures and common repairs and maintenance for down the road. Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds even includes information on how to become a steward, getting the word out about your little structure once it's up and running, and tips for building a lively collection. Community togetherness has never been so at the fore of our consciousness—or so important. Little Free Libraries and Tiny Sheds is one tool on the road to helping you build community in your neighborhood.

Celebrate the moms in your life (and perhaps yourself as well)! After all they've done for us, moms everywhere deserve to be appreciated on a daily basis, rather than waiting all year to get a card and some flowers. Think back on the many things, big and small, your mother has done for you over the years . . . from baking cookies or sometimes letting you choose the radio station on a car trip, to hemming your dress in time for the prom. Isn’t it time you started making those same gestures in the other direction? We think so! It is never too early, or for that matter, too late, to make a parent feel special. Mother’s Day has a long and storied history, stretching back to its earliest roots in the post-Civil War era. What began as one woman’s attempt to help heal the grief of mothers who’d lost sons on both sides of the fight and then became another woman’s attempt to honor her own mother, has morphed over the years into more of a commercial event. Isn’t it time we got back to the idea of making moms feel treasured and appreciated? In these pages, you’ll find idea after idea that will encompass a wide variety of activities to get you thinking about how to make your mom feel special, even if you don’t live close by. Go ahead and remember to buy that card and bring over some flowers on the actual Mother’s Day, but in the meantime, here are some ways to make every day count . . .

Mr. Tiffin and his students from the perennially popular How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? and The Dinosaur Expert make friends with, Librarian Beck a new character in the series who also happens to be non-binary. This thoughtful picture book is about a wood-working project that helps a young student become a book lover. Everyone in Mr. Tiffin's class couldn't be more excited that the new school library has finally opened. Everyone except Jake. Jake is a slow and careful reader. Sometimes he reads the same page more than once to figure everything out. And he often feels left behind on class Library Day. All that changes when Librarian Beck notices Jake running his fingers across the grooves of a brand-new bookshelf and offers him an old, worn book: Woodworking for Young Hands. Jake checks the book out, studies the pictures and instructions, and renews the book again and again. When the school year comes to an end, Jake has the perfect gift idea for the librarian who changed his life--and he makes it with his own two hands.
