We visited the 65th branch of LAPL! Platt Branch Library is in the Woodland Hills neighborhood near West Hills. Pierce College is down the street!
We were in time for Preschool Storytime, thank you Children’s Librarian! But Riley wanted to explore the children’s section instead. . . and by explore, I mean jump and be silly and not have to sit in one place.
We played and read, and laughed and hopped. . . and then cleaned up after ourselves before we checked out a bag full of books.
We even helped a Pierce College student find some diverse books! She was looking for books with diversity for a child development class, but didn’t know where to look and asked us, so we handed her a few we’d checked out before at other branches. We also gave her We Need Diverse Books and A Mighty Girl reference information. . .
We ended up taking home:
Before & After by Jean Jullien;
A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston;
Salt In His Shoes – Michael Jordan In Pursuit of a Dream, by Deloris Jordan with Roslyn M. Jordan and illustrated by Kadir Nelson;
I Just Want To Say Good Night by Rachel Isadora;
Don’t Lick The Dog – Making Friends with Dogs by Wendy Wahman;
My Dog Laughs by Rachel Isadora;
The Secret Olivia Told Me by N. Joy, illustrated by Nancy Devard – A Coretta Scott King Award Honor book;
My Best Friend by Pat Hutchins;
Luke Goes To Bat by Rachel Isadora;
Red Sled by Lita Judge;
I Hear A Pickle (and smell, see, touch, and taste it too!) by Rachel Isadora;
The Cat With The Seven Names by Tony Johnston, illustrated by Christine Davenier.
As always, the books that we ended up taking home were wonderful.
