The Dot, The OK Book, The Long Long Line, and Going to the Beach with Lily and Milo

Submitted by our summer intern Ms. Alexis! (We had a great summer with you Ms. Alexis! You rock!)
The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds brings forth creativity in Vashti, a girl who thought she just simply could not draw. This story shows how, with a little encouragement, one can become anything they want to be, even an artist who before could not draw. See this book listed in our catalog
“I’m OK,” is a phrase we hear quite often, but it is OK to be OK at a lot of things, as Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld show us. The OK Book teaches us to try a lot of things, and keep practicing, so that one day we will be excellent at something that we truly enjoy. See this book listed in our catalog
Travel through pages and pages of animals lined up for some sort of event, talking of how they can not wait for what is to come. Some even try to play a game because the wait is taking so long. In The Long, Long Line by Tomoko Ohmura not only do children relate to the feeling of waiting for what seems like hours in line, they also are introduced to all sorts of different animals, and can see the animals ranging from smallest to largest. In the end the line is worth the wait, so much so that some animals are willing to get back in line! See this book listed in our catalog
What supplies does one need to go to the beach? Help Lily and Milo pick out their outfits, and other appropriate items, for the beach. Once everything is loaded into the wagon, Milo begins to set out everything for a beach picnic... in the living room. Read Going to the Beach with Lily and Milo by Pauline Oud, and see what Lily and Milo decide to take with them on this excursion. See this book listed in our catalog
