Library Day on Tuesday

Jakob and I went to the Aubrey Public Library on Tuesday.  I am really liking the library since it is a little smaller.  The original story time planned was changed since the person scheduled was sick.  Jakob still enjoyed listening to the three stories and then he picked out the following books while he was at the library!
Little Gorilla by Ruth Bornstein
Creepy Crawlers by Mark Moore
Stanley, Flat Again by Jeff Brown
One Fine Day by Nonny Hogrogian
Pattern Fish by Trudy Harris
Snowmen at Christmas by Caralyn Buehner

The Aubrey Library is having the kids participate in creating a Flat Stanley.  We have read the first two chapters of Stanley, Flat Again by Jeff Brown and Jakob seems to be comprehending it!  Most of the pages have basic pictures and the words are large and not many on a page.  Therefore, chapters are short and interesting and the pictures still help Jakob begin to process it all!

The original Flat Stanley book was written in 1964.  Stanley was flattened by a bulletin board which fell on him while he was sleeping. Otherwise fine, Stanley was now very flat! He could slide under doors, be used as a kite, and be placed in envelopes to be mailed all over the world!  Many books have been written with Flat Stanley and he travels and does things all over the world.  Maybe Jakob will enjoy the books and can slowly introduce chapter books!

Jakob created his Flat Stanley and is mailing it to his Uncle Randy and Aunt Nikki in California!  It will sure be fun to see where he travels this summer!  Once Jakob receives the photos, he can take them back to the library and place it by the map!  Stay posted to see where Flat Stanley travels next!
