Cubbie is ready for winter! His favorite color is purple so he picked Spot's Favorite Colors by Eric Hill. Spot, a cute puppy, first arrived in book form in 1980 as the star of Where's Spot? MCPL holds more than 50 picture books in the Spot series, including books in Spanish, Chinese, and Vietnamese.
When we asked Jonah about his favorite book, he happily said, PEPPA! He adores Peppa Pig from watching the British animated series for pre-schoolers. Jonah selected Peppa Goes Swimming, a story about Peppa's little brother George overcoming his fear of swimming. Perhaps he's dreaming of summer! Here Jonah is pictured with his cute brother Nate.
The Monster at the End of this Book, starring lovable, furry old Grover. (All librarians love this book!) Shuliu's expression perfectly captures the excitement of this page-turner. She first saw Sesame Street on TV at a friend's party and has been hooked ever since. Sesame Street materials continue to be hugely popular and quickly disappear from our shelves.
And don't forget that all children can apply for their own library card, with an accompanying parent or guardian. Below, Ava proudly displays her new library card and models her Montgomery County recycling bag (limited quantities, while supplies last) filled with books, of course. Can't wait to see you again soon!
