Canoga Park is in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles – and the LAPL Canoga Park Branch has a great children’s section.

Riley was ready to find books right away! She led us (my mom, her G) to the back wall and began her search.

She found lots of good books. And then had a lie down for a while to rest.

She does make me laugh.

We picked out Feast For 10 by Cathryn Falwell, a book we’ve read before, but a great one at any time – especially around Thanksgiving.

We got The Flea’s Sneeze by Lynn Downey and illustrated by Karla Firehammer. We enjoyed the repetition of this one.

For You Are A Kenyan Child by Kelly Cunnane and art by Ana Juan was a beautifully illustrated story.

Hush! A Fantasy In Verse by Dominic Catalano, a modern take on the Hush, Little Baby lullaby, where all a little girl wants is a hug.

Every Year On Your Birthday by Rose Lewis and illustrated by Jane Dyer was a touching story about an adopted girl.

Pool by JuHyeon Lee was a lovely wordless book. Riley has been taking swimming lessons at the YMCA and was very interested in looking at all of the illustrations.

The Quilt Story by Tony Johnston and pictures by Tomie dePaola made me want to learn how to sew. . .

I really enjoyed the books we brought home, and Riley did too.

You can celebrate Native American Heritage Month at Canoga Park Branch on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 4pm for Kids and Teens! LAPL is participating in an ongoing Student Arts Contest as well.

Thanks as always, Los Angeles Public Library.
