From the Library Shelves

The good (and bad) thing about working in a library is that you find little gems on the shelves nearly every shift…I have had to learn to not bring every book home that I love.  I couldn’t go past this book because it is perfect for my story time session I am taking this week. When it comes to The Very Hungry Caterpillar I normally prefer the original book, but this lift-the-flap version is so sweet and perfect for my toddler group this week.

A Beary Busy Storytime

It’s School holidays here in Australia but storytime has still been happening at most branches of our library.  Yesterday I had the privilege of taking a preschool session and we had so much fun.  I had some really lovely books about bears that I wanted to read to the children so that is why I chose this theme.

They’re Bright, Familiar and Children Love Them!

There is a children’s picture book author whose books stand out on the book shelves, literally, because they are bright and colourful.  Lucy Cousins books are familiar to children, especially the Maisy Books.

Personally I have never been the biggest fan of Maisy, however when this book jumped out at me…the bright colours and size largely responsible, I saw Maisy and the story she had to tell from a completely new perspective. So, today’s post is me sharing with you why this book has changed my view.
