Do you love to read?

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great summer!!!!!! I know I am, what better way to spend the summer than working at the Children's Museum of Memphis?

Are any of you spending your summer days reading some great books? Here is a list of a few of my favorite children's books: Commotion in the Ocean, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, The Color of Us, Love You Forever, Today I feel Silly, The Little Engine that Could, Shapesville, Sideways Stories from Wayside School (older children), Give a Mouse a Cookies (series), What Makes a Rainbow, The Cookie Counting Book, and any of the Little People books.

My favorite children's book authors are Tomie Depaola and Robert Munch. When I choose children's books I try to find ones about zoo animals, ocean animals, books that talk about traveling or ones that can teach me something about another part of the world.

If you would like to come to the museum and hear us read some of our favorite books you can come during one of our literacy programs. I hope to see you here for one of our programs. When you come, you can tell me what your favorite books are.

11:30 AM on Mondays is Tales and Tunes (Story and Song)

10:00 AM on Tuesdays is My First Book Club (Story, craft, and snack)

12:00 PM on Wednesdays, Thursday, and Fridays is R & R Storytime

3:30 PM on Thursdays is Bookworms (Story and Craft)

Books are great! They can help you imagine a tower of ice cream or what its like to live in China or how to be a princess. Some books can teach you about shapes, colors, history, sharing, caring, animals, and SO much more. So...if you are bored this summer, just fall into a good book and enjoy wherever your imagination takes you! Happy reading!
