Fall is a great time to read about those fun-loving, pesky, and yes, even scaredy squirrels. Here are a few good titles to start with:
“Once upon a time there were three dinosaurs and a poorly supervised little girl named Goldilocks.” Wait, that’s not how the story goes! Check out Mo Willems' latest book and hilarious version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. In this book, Goldilocks eats pudding, not porridge, and the three dinosaurs, not bears, are “definitely not hiding in the woods waiting for an unsuspecting kid." Both parents and kids will enjoy this laugh-out-loud story where the first chair is “Too tall,” the second chair is “Too tall,” and the third chair is, “TOO TALL!”
This year marks the 200th birthday of one of the most famous writers of all times - Charles Dickens. Dickens was an ordinary person who wrote extraordinary stories. No one tells a ghost story quite like Dickens. Even though he lived in the 1800s we still love his books today. Many of his novels are for adults but some appeal to kids too. In Kids' World we have shortened versions of his works. We also have fascinating biographies of his life. Some of the books we have feature him as a character in the story. Here's a list of books written by him and about him - but there are more. Have you ever thought about becoming a writer yourself? You may want to come to our workshops for kids held at the library. They're called Kids' Ink. Please check the newsletter for future dates.
