Kids fun! Story Time!

Back in January we all went to the Library and got ourselves a card for the family... It was so worth it!
Delaney thinks that it is just her card but hey if that keeps her going back she can think its just hers forever!

We go weekly and get new books and a few movies... but the highlight is that we go to story-time! The Librarian reads a story or two and does activities with the kids, Delaney loves it and both kiddos get to interact with other kids.

So in light of story time at the library we have been having our own story time at home in the afternoon and I thought since there are so many great stories out there I would share our favorites right here...

My first choice has the greatest art work and the story is so cute!

The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward 
Find it here from Puffin books

It's about two sisters who find a "Bog Baby" and take it home... mom eventually finds out and they have to set him free after learning a great lesson. The ending is the best as the authors daughter gets to look for her own "Bog Baby".

The best part of this book is that at the end you find this...
You can draw your own "Bog Baby" and write all about him/her and send it off to the publishers. (Puffin Books) As our copy was from the library we just drew our "Bog Babies" and chatted about them.
And how can you talk about this story without talking about the art! It's beautiful...
I love the look of this book and I have to say that this is one of the things that caught my eye and made me pick it up... It looks beautiful and it was easy to have Delaney look through the book and find colors and shapes and choose her favorite pictures.

All in all this was a great book and we all enjoyed it! It gave us a great activity to do and it gave us a great story to talk about.
