Today’s storytime was all about books!  Small books, big books, book bears, delicious books, and of course:  libraries.  To check our library catalog, click on the title.


Otto the Book Bear by Katie Cleminson

Otto lives in a book in a house but when no one is looking he comes to life to read his favorite stories and practice his writing, until he is left behind and must set out in search of a new home.

Again! by Emily Gravett

At bedtime, Cedric the dragon wants his mother to read his favorite book again, and again, and again.

Open this Little Book by Jesse Klausmeier

Pages of decreasing, then increasing, size open to reveal different animals, each opening a book of a different color and reading about the next.

Flannel board

The flannel board story is based on Oliver Jeffers’ picture book The Incredible Book Eating Boy. Not necessarily about food per se, but certainly amplifies our theme of Reading is So Delicious!

The story is about Henry who loves to eat books.
