Programming Reads!

Today I was creating a plan for a Storytime Program that I will be running in February. My initial thought was I wanted to work in “The little elephant who wants to fall asleep” by Carl-Johan Forssen Ehrlin because it’s a super cute read and who doesn’t love elephants? Unfortunately the whole point of the book is to help your child fall asleep and I don’t want a bunch of two year olds falling asleep on me. SO keeping on the theme of elephants I decided to go with “Elephants can’t dance” by Mo Willems.

Mo Willems does a great job with all of his Elephant and Piggie series.
The books starts off with quite a funny dedication: “To Jon Sciezka (who also can’t dance)” which reading this as an adult of course gives the book and extra bit of humour. While reading the book we obviously meet Gerald (the elephant) and Piggie (the pig). In this book Piggie wants Gerald to learn how to dance even thought he consistently says that “Elephants can’t dance.”
This book showcases that through perseverance and by having supportive friends you can do anything you put your mind to! I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a bit of a pick me up!

Reads!

Today I was working in the graphic novel section and I’ll admit I don’t usually read graphic novels. Not that I think they aren’t considered “books” they just aren’t my style. But today as I was working away I spotted these two books. And I Love Dragon Age. I’ve played all the games through at least twice I’m pretty read up on the lore too. So I decided to grab these and wow! Was I ever impressed! 10/10 would recommend!

Lunch break reads!

Today’s lunch break reading d The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye! I’m only 50 or so pages into this book but I’m hooked! Honestly any book that has Romanovs in it is enough to grip me!

Reads March, 3 2016

I am currently reading:

One More Thing by B.J. Novak as well as Go Set a Watchmen by Harper Lee.

These two books are pretty much polar opposites with Lee’s being classical and literate and discussing crucial topics in American history while Novak’s book is humorous and to the point. These books complement each however in the fact that they both have grit. From Jean-Louise, Scout’s, never changing stubbornness  to the haughtiness of the characters within Novak’s short stories these characters go after what they want in a world that doesn’t necessarily agree with them.

I’m really enjoying both books and will update my progress further as I near finishing them.
