Thorndyke dressed as Winnie-the-Pooh

 

Hey Kids,

Did you know that it is Children's Book Week? This year, from April 30 - May 6, we're celebrating children's literature at the library. I'm joining in the fun by dressing up as one of my favorite book characters, Winnie-the-Pooh. Who is your favorite character? 

Even though I love Pooh Bear, there are always new stories to discover. Below are some great stories I've read this year. I hope to see you soon at the library - please come show or tell me about your favorite children's books and characters.

Bear Hugs,

Thorndyke
