Book Blitz Month

January 4, 2016

Happy New Year! Here at the Main library we're ready to celebrate with some of our favorite book characters, including Flat Stanley, Fly Guy, Elephant & Piggie, and Pete the Cat. We'd love to see you here for crafts, activities, and lots of books, which are all available to check out.

These characters all star in some terrific beginning readers, which are perfect for children just starting out with the reading process. Get to know some of the superstars of children's literature and introduce them to the whole family!

Here's the schedule for the month:

Jan. 4-9         Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown
Jan. 11-16     Fly Guy by Tedd Arnold
Jan. 18-23     Elephant & Piggie by Mo Willems
Jan. 25-30     Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin or James Dean

Some crafts include coloring a Flat Stanley to send to a friend or relative in the mail, adding wings to Fly Guy, creating Gerald (Elephant) or Piggie paper bag puppets, and decorating a shoe for Pete the Cat. In addition, we will also have activity sheets and coloring pages available to do here or take home.

With one new character each week this month, you'll find plenty of things to do each time you come. See you soon!
