Join us for our monthly storytime. Bring the kids or grandkids and let us entertain you. Featured books this month will be Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert, Mother Ghost by Rachel Kolar and Roland Garrigue, and Five Little Pumpkins Came Back by Dan Yaccarino.
This is the story of a sugar maple tree and the child who planted it. As they grow up together, the child watches the tree through all the seasons. Ehlert uses watercolor collage, leaf-shaped die cuts and pieces of actual seeds, fabric, wire, and roots in this rich introduction to the life of a tree. (Houghton Mifflin, $17.99)
From "Mary, Mary, Tall and Scary" to "Wee Willie Werewolf," this collection of classic nursery rhymes turned on their heads will give readers the chills--and a serious case of belly laughs. With clever rhyme and spooky illustrations, Mother Ghost: Nursery Rhymes for Little Monsters is perfect for getting in the Halloween spirit. (Sleeping Bear Press, $16.00)
From celebrated author-illustrator Dan Yaccarino comes the spirited sequel to his bestselling Five Little Pumpkins, based on the classic nursery rhyme. The sun is setting and the moon is rising--join the pumpkins on a Halloween romp as they roll along with their friends and get into more spooky fun. (Harper $6.99)
