Bears!

30 Jun

I explored two new picture books this weekend, and they both surprised me!

WhenI first looked at Brother Hugo and the Bear, by Katy Beebe I thought it might be boring. It’s about a monk who needs to rewrite a book because a bear ate part of it. I was really surprised to learn all about how books were made in the 1100’s. They had to do all the ink-making and writing by hand! The illustrations were beautiful, and the style was different from other picture books. This would be a great book snack for students who are interested in the how books were made in the past.

The second book that surprised me this weekend is Three Bears in a Boat, by David Soman. I wasn’t sure what kind of a book I was going to be reading, but I absolutely loved it. The artwork is so beautiful, and they experience wonderful adventures! I can’t wait to share this tasty  book snack with all my Loudonville friends!

I went to the library and….

I picked up some really great picture books! I can’t wait to get these into our library! Meet Me at the Moon is the first book I read. It’s a very sweet story about an elephant whose mother has to leave to call for rain. How will Little One know where her mother is? Will Little One know that her mother still loves her when she’s gone? The illustrations in this book are beautiful!

Homer, the Library Cat and Neville are also fun and unusual. Homer is a quiet cat, but he is having a hard time finding a quiet place. You’ll never guess where Homer finally finds the quiet he craves! 🙂 I also really enjoyed Neville because it’s a story about a boy whose family has just moved, and he has had to leave everything behind. How will he make friends. Will he fit in? Find out his clever plan in this book!

My favorite book in this bunch is Z is for Moose. It starts off like a regular ABC book, but when Moose realizes he isn’t on the M page, things get a little zany! If you are looking for a quick laugh, this is the perfect book to snack on!

Stay tuned for more of my adventures at the public library – and let me know what you find there, too!
