Bedtime Stories and Mom's Club

Back-to-back storytimes this week as we held Bedtime Stories Wednesday night, and hosted a Mom's Club storytime this morning. Our Bedtimes Stories featured "Wow! Said the Owl", by Tim Hopgood about a young owl who stays up to experience daytime and is delighted by the beautiful colors. In "Aunt Nina, Good Night", by Franz Brandenberg with illustrations by Aliki, a patient aunt helps her nieces and nephews fall asleep and ultimately has a great bonding moment.

This morning we held Mom's Club storytime outside under the trees while the chimes rang (for a full half hour!). We shared books about friends who hold different ideas about fun, including "Mac and Cheese", an easy reader by Sarah Weeks, illustrated by Jane Manning, and "Hello, My Name is Bob", by Linas Alsenas.

Both events featured a flannel board game with rocketships! Thanks to all who came.
