You guys, we’ve been to 25 branches! It’s like we just finished an Advent Calendar just in time for the holidays!
Riley loved browsing the books and building with the large LEGO blocks. She especially loved the fish images on the carpet. . .
She enjoyed meeting other kids too.
Riley picked a few books and brought them to the floor – before spying on the neighborhood.
We want to go back to the Studio City Branch for the BARK Kids Reading to Dogs program and their STEAM Programs.
The first book we got was Atlantic by G. Brian Karas. There were really pretty images of the ocean through pictures and words.
We then got the board book Who? Pictures To Talk About by Leo Lionni, a simple yet lovely little book with a few different animals.
Corduroy by Don Freeman is a favorite book of Riley’s that she has in a board book version. She liked this paper page version as well. . .
Big, Bigger, Biggest! by Nancy Coffelt was really fun to read – and a great tool for learning new vocabulary. . .
Mama’s Nightingale A Story of Immigration and Separation by Edwidge Danticat and illustrations by Leslie Staub was a truly beautiful, sad — and happy story. Everyone should read this book. I cried at the end. . .
The next book, was Biblioburro A True Story From Colombia by Jeanette Winter. A celebration of loving and sharing the wonders of books.
The three last books were about the current and upcoming holidays!
Four Sides, Eight Nights A New Spin On Hanukkah by Rebecca Tova Ben-Zvi, illustrated by Susanna Natti – a great, long history lesson with fun illustrations!
Counting Christmas by Karen Katz was a sweet Christmas themed counting book from 10 to 1.
Seven Spools of Thread A Kwanzaa Story by Angela Shelf Medearis, illustrated by Daniel Minter was a lovely reminder to work together for the good of families and communities.
