This week at storytime was special as it started off with our National year of reading launch on the Tuesday!  What was the theme of the week? Why, books of course! What else?

We read;

We are in a book!” By Mo Willems – we don’t have this book as of yet except in the storytime collection.  We do have plenty of other Mo Willems books and I recommend them all. Click on the link to check them out.

The incredible book-eating boy!” by Oliver Jeffers – Oliver Jeffers is another of my favourite picture book creators.  Check out this and his other works from the library!

Press here” by Herve Tulley – A particular favourite.  This book shows that iPads are cool but books are really neat as well.  This was the standout from the session. I’m ordering more copies for the library. Don’t you worry!

We made;

Our own name book! We folded paper and tied it together with ribbon and then cut out the letters of our name.  On each page we stuck a letter and also found and cut out things that started with that letter.  So in the end everyone left the library with their own book that they created – their own special name book.

Success Library runs a little differently as their theme is spread out over two weeks – it was Dinosaurs today and will continue again on Tuesday so if you’re in the area pop on down. You’ll have storyteller masters Chantelle, Karen and Lizelle providing the free entertainment there!

This week was lots of fun! Look forward to seeing everyone next week! Remember times are 10:30-~11:15 on Tuesdays and Fridays at Success and Spearwood and Wednesdays at Coolbellup!
