Storytime Picks from Monday, April 23

Brrrrr! What happened to Springtime? Seems to have blown away in the cold, cold wind. Luckily, it seems like this area missed most of the freak late-April snowstorm, but what we got in its place was not much better: Steady, bone-chilling rain.

Thanks to those who chose to warm up with us at the Toy Lending Library, particularly those who joined in on the wing-flapping fun with today’s storytime pick:

Wings on Things
by Marc Brown

No mystery to Wings on Things, just vibrant illustrations and funny, tongue-twisting lines about the many fantastic and fantastical things wings can do. From bird and butterfly wings to airplane wings, wings on a chair, and even robot wings, Brown uses his characteristic illustrative style to perfectly encapsulate the fun and funny prose.

Wings on Things is just one in the great Bright and Early Books line, recognizable by its visual connection to Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat. Many of the B&E titles are not Dr. Seuss, but use his trademark style and wit to continue his legacy of great, educational books for young readers. Additionally, many of the non-Seuss titles in the B&E series are shorter than the average Seuss book, making them especially accessible for very young children or storytime-reluctant kids. With their simple words and repetition, they also make great books for kids just learning to read on their own.

Storytime is every Monday at 10 am and is intended for all ages.
