Cornelius Van Ploof lives alone and likes peace and quiet! One Sunday afternoon a “big fat cat” appears in a box on his doorstep. Sure enough, a daily progression of trouble begins. By Friday, Cornelius has had enough and kicks him out, but after a day he misses the cat and welcomes him back. All is well until the following Sunday when a box containing a scruffy puppy arrives. This is a funny picture book and will make a great read aloud. Recommended for grades PreK-1.
If you haven't been to Tremont in a while you may want to swing by!
The Friends of the UAPL have generously donated funds to bring you a much improved Early Learning Center at Tremont in the Youth department.
You and your little ones will find more adult seating, a padded baby/toddler corner with an interactive activity center for crawlers, large soft blocks for constructive play, a 4X6 magnetic board with magnetic pieces to explore shapes and colors, and a 4X6 felt board for creating stories! Earlier in the year we added safer and more size-appropriate seating and tables for your little ones. Enjoy!
