This week in storytime we celebrate Spring, and St. Patrick's Day with "green" stories. We have a beautiful new picture book in the library by Laura Vaccaro Seeger that shares green in all it's glory and Ms. Eileen and I are looking forward to sharing it with everyone. You can click on this link to be taken to a YouTube presentation of the book.
Perennial storyime favorites such as "Where's the Green Sheep" by Mem Fox and Judy Hovarek,"Go Away Big Green Monster" by Ed Emberly, and "Green Eggs and Ham", by Dr. Seuss, as well as a lovely book by Kevin Henkes, "Little White Rabbit, may be featured.

This week's action rhymes include:
Five little peas in a pea pod pressed
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest
They grew and they grew and they did not stop
Until one day that pea pod POPPED!
