Storytime Picks from Monday, June 11

With summertime around the corner, the weather outside is getting hotter, the days are getting longer and longer, and the time is right for STORYTIME! What’s a better way to beat the heat then to come inside the Toy Lending Library for a little while and cool off with a story?

This week’s story takes place far away from the sun and heat of early June, to a land under the ocean waves where an awesome shark lives with his crab and fish pals:

I’m a Shark
by Bob Shea

Shark is so awesome. He’s got big teeth, big eyes, big fins, and best of all, he’s not afraid of anything! Not a giant squid or the dark or even a big, mean bear! But… then again… there’s always… SPIDERS! Could the unbelievably awesome shark be afraid of a little creepy crawly spider? Kids and parents alike will love the bright illustrations and absurd humor of this fun undersea tale.

Told with Shea’s signature wit and style, I’m a Shark will delight fans of Dinosaur Vs. Bedtime, as well as the Mo Willems Pigeon series and other clever-kid classic picture books.

School’s almost out (or out, for the lucky ones) and the weather is right, so now is the time to get out and PLAY! Swim in the pool, visit the parks, take a family bike ride on one of the many Pittsburgh bike trails, and so much more!
