Come see Sydney...

Sydney, the bearded dragon has moved into the LaGrange County Public Library. After the library closes, he likes to leave his home in the tank and find interesting things in the library.

This time he found the book Milly and the Macy’s Parade by Shana Corey. It is about a little girl named Milly who helped Mr. Macy come up with the idea of a great parade.

The story is fiction but it is based on facts. If you like watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, you just might enjoy this story.
