Editor’s note: The following article is a synopsis written by staff members and volunteers of the Cary Public Library highlighting one of the suggested reading books, as determined by their staff.
    Well, well! Now we look forward to Spring and along comes a book about earmuffs! However, as the March winds continue to blow, perhaps this book is viable! “Earmuffs for Everyone” by Meghan McCarthy with her own illustrations is part fun, part historical, part educational and with tact and good humor tells the “real” tale of Maine’s inventor Chester Greenwood, who had 16-year-old sensitive ears.
