A whole different program this week.

We’ll check out 4 stores
While at his house, Boone snores
During the long morning nap he will sneak.

MLLBookBreak

Though typically closed on Tuesday, Marilyn opened up Book Break to offer our readers a tour of the bookstore. She also read a story about a litter of rescued wolf pups who now live at the Minnesota Zoo.

Boone’s not much of a tourist, so he took the day off as his “Books with Boone” readers visited a few Maple Lake businesses, including Maple Lake Floral, the Maple Lake Messenger, Maple Lake Lumber and Book Break.

Boone’s buddies are grateful to the owners and staff who adjusted their schedules to accommodate the program, welcomed us with cards, cookies, notepads and bookmarks, and spent part of their busy days showing us around their facilities. We learned that these are only a few of the fun places in Maple Lake!

Next week, Boone will return to help celebrate the Olympic Games, with a Pentathlon of activities – please join us!
