  and  I couldn’t choose just one book this week, so there’s a tie for favorite book of the week, between Gladys Goes Out to Lunch by Derek Anderson and The Wolf’s Chicken Stew by Keiko Kasza.

My favorite book  this week was Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin. This book is so much fun to read out loud. The kids loved saying “Oh, no!” My favorite comment came from one little girl who, when Pete’s shoes turn blue, said “now his shoes match his fur!”  Love … Continue reading

My fave book this week is The Little Rabbit Who Likes To Say Moo. These are animals with attitude, and a flare for making all kinds of great animal sounds (not just their own).   As Rabbit would say, “cool”.  Side note: when I asked the kids what a donkey says, all went quiet. Then one … Continue reading

My storytime fave this week is Red Sled by Lita Judge.  This is that rare nearly-wordless book that works well in storytime. The illustrations are magical, with even the youngest kids in my drop-in storytime able to translate them into a verbal story. And what words there are, are simply magical, especially gadung, gadung, gadung! … Continue reading
