It was a wonderful return to Reed this week! So special to see all our friends after the Holidays and think about all the exciting events ahead for 2019 (like Book Fair!).
To celebrate Winter - which I know many people don't always enjoy (but between us, I do love a good rainy day excuse to curl up with coffee & my book), I decided to share one of my favorite new Nonfiction Books Mama Dug a Little Den by Jennifer Ward.
Many contemporary Nonfiction books have a magical way of sharing facts & information, cocooned in an almost fictional nest of text & illustrations.
And this one is no different, as while every page has a fun fact about an animal's den, there is also an opening one-verse poem to offer clues about the purpose of the den.
Being Winter, this was the perfect opportunity to touch on Hibernation & watch a Mystery Science all about a few lesser known winter survivals tricks (don't forget to ask your kiddos where frogs go in Winter!) on top of looking at the versatility of a den.
Welcome to the on-line home of Reed Library! I'm so pleased you came to visit & hope you keep coming back to read my blog on our latest happenings, new books & our exciting digital citizenship program!
