Ms Kate's Storytime Faves

This week the Terrific Two's & Three's enjoyed two of Ms Kate's favorite stories.

Bark George by Jules Feiffer

Bark George is a silly story about George the dog.  George's mom asks George to bark, but he says everything but "ARF".  Why is George meowing, quacking, oinking, and mooing?  Will he ever say "ARF?"


Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin

Pete the cat loves his white shoes.  But what happens when he walks through piles and puddles of different colors? Pete has a groovy attitude about his shoes no matter what color they are, and no matter what he walks through.

Ms Kate's Storytime Faves

Nothing says summer like a day at the beach!  Or roadwork!

Pig Kahuna by Jennifer Gordon Sattler

Fergus and his little brother, Dink, love collecting the things that wash up on the beach, especially if it means that Fergus doesn't actually have to go in the water. Then one day, they spy the greatest treasure of all-an abandoned surfboard. When no one comes to claim it, they make it the star of their collection and name it "Dave." But when Dave accidentally (on purpose?) gets cast back into the ocean, can Fergus find the courage to rescue him?


Sally Goes to the Beach by Stephen Huneck

This fun-filled tale, told from a dog's point of view, tells of all the wonderful sights, smells, and events Sally experiences while hanging around with the family during a day at the beach.



One Hole in the Road by W. Nikola-Lisa

Introduces the numbers one through ten while describing the people and machinery involved in fixing a hole in the road.




The Mighty Street Sweeper by Patrick H. Moore

Although not the largest or fastest, the little street sweeper truck is proud to be just who he is and works hard to complete the challenging job he has been given to do, in a simple tale with bold illustrations and compare-and-contrast text.
