The library collection at Annapolis Middle School was never large. But since last year, it had been shrinking noticeably. First came a weeding-out, as Laury D. Lear, then the school's new media specialist, tossed 100 boxes of the oldest titles - including books on making jewelry using toxic lead and on career choices dating to the 1960s. Then a pile of books was lost over the summer, damaged after being moved from the library during asbestos removal. The $12,000 a year the school receives for media center supplies doesn't leave much for buying hardcovers and paperbacks.

The association asked more than 1,000 members to pick their five favorites, and compiled the list based on the results.Teachers also suggest a gift of time with a book -- time to read aloud, talk about a favorite story and show children how important reading is."

If my children never want to go back to Martha's Vineyard, it's Shel Silverstein's fault.Most kids come home after a vacation on the wind-burned Massachusetts island with a few T-shirts, a Black Dog bakery baseball cap (with that classy red embroidered collar around the dog), and memories scented with Panama Jack sunscreen and New England clam chowder.Most of them have a pretty good time and keep fond, salt-sprayed memories of building drip castles on the coarse sandy beaches, dog-paddling in the protective coves, and getting on the ferry and pretending to jump overboard in order to scare the khaki pants off their parents.

Irish music isn't like Christmas carols, the sort of thing people only play during the holidays. But unless you're a genuine Celtic music fan, you probably hear more Irish music around St. Patrick's Day than at any other time of the year.Just as Christmas albums range from traditional ("We Three Kings") to commercial ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer") to contemporary ("Christmas With 'N Sync"), so too do Irish albums. Here's a look at some of what this season offers:VariousThe Ultimate St. Patrick's Day Celebration (Columbia Legacy 65217)

" 'Night Animals' by Millicent E. Selsam is about animals in the night. I liked it because the book has real pictures in it of animals that are doing things. I would recommend it to every family to read together so they can learn about animals."-- Sammy Ulysse, Running Brook Elementary"I like 'Where the Sidewalk Ends' by Shel Silverstein because it has nice poems about funny people who do funny things. One poem called 'Melinda Mae' is about a girl who says she can eat a whole whale when everyone says she can't.

"I would recommend 'Black Beauty' by Anna Sewell because it is realistic. I would also recommend this book because it is enjoyable. Read to find out what a great horse she was."Bryan Washington, Grade 3Leith Walk Elementary"I really liked the book 'Elsa' written by Joy Adamson, because it was about a lioness and because it was about Africa. And Elsa was cute when she was a baby. And her cubs were cute when she had them."Jack Mitchell, Grade 1Riderwood Elementary"I think 'Where the Sidewalk Ends' by Shel Silverstein is a great book.
