The Weather Outside is Frightful…But the Books are So Delightful!

From our Friends at the Perth and District Union Library:

What a perfect winter for curling up with your little ones and reading aloud! Reading together – shared reading – is the single most important way to help children get ready to read.

Here are a few book suggestions that are available at or through your local library…

Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson

On a cold winter night many animals gather to party in the cave of a sleeping bear, who then awakes and protests that he has missed the food and fun.

Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown

Bored with city life and the proper behaviour it requires, Mr. Tiger has a wild idea that leads him to discover his true nature.

This Is Not My Hat by J. Klassen

A little fish steals a hat from a big fish.

Llama, Llama, Mad at Mama by Anna Dewdney

A young llama wants to play, but must go shopping with his mother instead, and so he gets angry and makes a mess at the store.
