Baloney, Peanut, Bizz and Krabbit have different adventures–going camping, finding Baloney’s sneeze, exploring what a ladder does. Baloney, Peanut, and Bizz are happy and excited about stuff, and Krabbit is grumpy. The author also teaches readers how to start their own comics which is great.
As you gear up for your holiday shopping, look no further than the library for the year’s best books for the children in your life. If you missed the presentation, don’t worry– we recorded it so you can watch it at your convenience and learn all about fabulous fiction and nonfiction titles for preschoolers through 6th graders. This event was sponsored by Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation.
We recently held a program titled Diverse Books to Share With Your Classroom for educators in our community. Thousands of books are published every year, making it hard sometimes to keep with all the great new titles that could be used in classrooms. Library staff are happy to help by narrowing down the choices and sharing the best of the best with teachers.
We have booklists and curriculum resources for you to keep and use and share with your colleagues. Clicking that link will automatically download a zip file with all the resources.
This program was actually suggested to us by a member of the school community. If you have any other ideas for ways we can support you in your teaching, please get in touch and let us know!
There’s still time left to check out some great reads for Pride! Stop by our display or check out our lists here:
