Book Cover for Naptime with Theo and BeauMarch 22nd was National Puppy Day! What a great way to bring in Springtime with a loveable, joyous, bouncing, full-of-life puppy! We have a lot of great books that celebrate all the wonderful things that puppies and dogs bring into our lives. A recent book called Naptime with Theo and Beau celebrates the bond between a young child and his puppy. Check out the video for the book for a sneak peek at all the interesting and endearing ways these too share sleeptime, playtime, and each other.

I like to play a lot of music in my storytimes, and some of my favorite songs include “Dance, Freeze, Melt” and “Jumping and Counting”.  Those songs and more can be found on the CDs listed below.  Request one today to extend storytime learning and fun in your car or at your house!

“Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!” I recently read a variation of the classic Gingerbread Man tale, but this Gingerbread Man was loose in the library! I thought it might be fun to read some other variations, so here are some you might want to try.
