My, Oh My–A Butterfly! by Tish Rabe, illustrated by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu

With a little help from the Cat in the Hat, Sally and Dick observe a small miracle in their own backyard–the metamorphosis of an egg into a caterpillar into a chrysalis into a bright new butterfly! Along the way, beginning readers will find out how butterflies see thousands of images at once, drink nectar from flowers, avoid predators, and can be identified by size, shape, and color. Readers will also follow the amazing migration of millions of monarchs. We will work on a jeweled butterfly craft after the book discussion, and eat some healthy snacks.

Promoting play contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills. It also lays the foundation for logical mathematical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving—things children carry with them throughout their school years, says “Play = Learning,” a recent study by Dorothy Singer, a senior research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Psychology and Child Study Center.

The One and Only Ivan  by Katherine Applegate

Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain.

Ivan thinks about TV shows he’s seen and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. But mostly Ivan thinks about art and how to capture the taste of a mango or the sound of leaves with color and a well-placed line.

Then he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family, and she makes Ivan see their home—and his own art—through new eyes. When Ruby arrives, change comes with her, and it’s up to Ivan to make it a change for the better.

Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create Ivan’s unforgettable first-person narration in a story of friendship, art, and hope.

Registration is NOT required but highly recommended to ensure we have enough copies of each book available.

Register online, by calling the library @ 203-775-6241, or at our Checkout Desk by Monday, April 28.

Write On! A Journaling Session for kids in Grades 2-5

Date & Time: May 8, 2014 5:30 pm


Free Event

Journal keeping is a remarkably valuable activity for kids that hones language skills and allows opportunities for non-verbal expression.

And it’s fun!

This session we will be creating stories with pictures.  We hope some of our writers will be willing to share some stories they have written in their journals since our last meeting.

Returning children are asked to bring the journals they received at our last session with them.  Our “newbies” will be given a journal to take make

their own.

There is no fee for this program, just the requirement to bring your imagination.

Registration required.  You may register online below, by phone at 203-775-6241 or in person at our Checkout Desk by Wednesday, May 7, 2014.
