Gary at the Library

Library Gary returned to the library this week with Library Daughter to enjoy the week's theme of "Big and Little." Books read included Eddie Longpants by Mireille Levert, Big Shoe, Little Shoe by Denys Cazet, One Dark Night by Lisa Wheeler, and A Closer Look by Mary McCarthy.

This week's craft was an elephant mask. When Library Daughter put her mask on and asked me to pick her up, I gave her a look of shock and said I wasn't strong enough to pick up an elephant.

"But I'm a baby elephant" she said.
I replied "Well, even baby elephants are big."
"But Bapa Gary said they only weigh like five hundred pounds and that's like the size of a small car" she pleaded.
"But sweetie, I can't pick up a car" I concluded.

That's right, Library Dad can lift a large stack of books, but not a small car.

Library Gary and Library Daughter also did some coloring and brought home stickers.
