Pre/K Story Time Books (4.23.13)

It was all about fashion today....

The Philharmonic Gets Dressed
story by Karla Kuskin
illustrations by Marc Simont

Delightful and unique. A modern classic.

A flannel board activity to go along with: 

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
story by Eric Litwin
illustrations by James Dean

The flannel board activity was created by Miss Angie. I knew her Pinterest addiction would finally work to my advantage! Thanks, Miss, Angie. :-)

There's also a song. It is one of the most insidious earworms ever.

Button Up! Wrinkled Rhymes
poems by Alice Shertle
illustrations by Petra Mathers
jE 811.54 S

Because it's national Poetry Month. And because poems about underwear are always funny. Always.

Big Pig's Hat
story by Willy Smax
illustrations by Keren Ludlow

Possibly my favorite read-aloud ever. A sly lesson about bullies and jumping to conclusions hidden in a rip-roaringly silly western with wonderful cartoon-like pics from Ludlow. The fact that this is out of print makes me wonder what is wrong with the world.

If you have children between the ages of 4 and 6, please join us next Tuesday from 2:00-2:45 pm. There is no charge, and registration is not required.
