Library Gary Report For March 25th

Title: Cinco Monitos Sin Nada Que Hacer/Five Little Monkeys With Nothing To Do
Author: Eileen Christelow
Illustrator: N/A
Pages: 13
Genre: Board Book
Dewey Decimal: Board Book 589
ISBN: 978-0-618-89423-9
Cost: $0

This bilingual board book is about the five little monkeys with apparently nothing to do. As I'm sure you can guess, they get into a little trouble. Most interesting to me though, is how she made the dust. By using the contents of her pencil sharpener! How smart.

Title: Max Counts His Chickens
Author: Rosemary Wells
Illustrator: N/A
Pages: 14
Genre: Easy Reader
Dewey Decimal: E Wel
ISBN: 978-0-670-06222-5
Cost: $0

As any parent with young kids knows, Max and Ruby are bunnies. In this story, they're visited by the Easter Bunny, which I first thought was an older version of Max. Turns out the Easter Bunny leaves marshmallow chicks behind (as in Peeps). Is that a subtle reference to chickens laying eggs and the Easter Bunny leaving humans eggs? I don't know, but the story was pretty straight forward. And enjoyable. Just be careful of that last page, it's a little tricky.

Title: Danitra Brown Leaves Town
Author: Nikki Grimes
Illustrator: Floyd Cooper
Pages: 12
Genre: Easy Reader
Dewey Decimal: E Gri
ISBN: 978-0-688-13156-5
Cost: $0

Wonderful artwork and poetry. I didn't read this particular story so I can't tell you much about it. But I vaguely recall reading a previous Danitra book and it was good. Poetry isn't really my favorite thing, but it was still a decent read.

During Storytime, Library Gary and Elizabeth also worked on a craft. In the photo at the top, you'll see a cherry tree made with popcorn.
