National Library Week and a Review of Book! Book! Book!

This is National Library Week, so I made time to take M to story time today at our local library. Our library system is fantastic when it comes to toddler and preschool story time events. There are several each week, and they're split up into different age groups so there's something for everyone. Today's story time was for ages 3-5, and it included songs, books and a puppet show.

Book! Book! Book!

The puppet show was based on a book called Book! Book! Book! by Deborah Bruss, and we were lucky to find a copy to take home with us after story time ended. This is a great story about a group of farm animals who are bored one day, so they take a walk into town. There they find a library, and each animal goes inside to ask the librarian for something fun to do. But the librarian can't understand what they're saying, until the hen goes in and says, "Book! Book! Book!" It's a cute story with fun illustrations and a silly ending. We all really enjoyed this story, and it fit in well with our celebration of National Library Week.

Of course, we couldn't leave the library with just one book. We ended up filling our library bag with books for the kids. I'm so glad I purchased a reusable bag from the library, because it sure beats trying to carry stacks of books in my arms while holding my kids' hands!

So how did you celebrate National Library Week? Have you been to the library this week?
