Children and families are invited to bring a lunch to the library to enjoy while Mrs. B and I read the "new" books. This year we had to do the event in the Children's area of the library instead of our large meeting room because we have a long-standing community group that meets there every Monday. We draw for door prizes (everyone won a book!). Here are the books we presented this year (in no particular order):
|Hippospotamus by Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross|
|Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds; illustrated by Peter Brown|
|Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Button by James Dean and Eric Lituin|
|The Three Ninja Pigs by Corey Rosen Schwartz;|
illustrated by Dan Santat
|Princess in Training by Tammi Sauer and Joe Berger|
I also highlighted a fun chapter book and two graphic novels for the older children who attended. I made them into book trailers...but I had a hard time finding good pictures that were "free"...so I am only posting one here that didn't use any copyrighted material (except images from the book...which are legal if one is promoting the book).
|This one has been out for a while, but I think it's such a fun book I have to share it!|
The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
|Explorer: The Mystery Boxes|
|Earthling by Mark Fearing|
This is the book trailer I made for Earthling
We drew a record turn out for the event! This is a fun event that I look forward to each year!
