The Little Red Hen

Schoolhouse players presents "The Little Red Hen".  At the Little Red Hen's Chicken Coop and Boarding House, our hostess has been trying to get her silly friends, the Cat, Dog and Mouse, to help her make some bread from scratch, but they always seem to have something more important to do. It's not until the Little Red Hen does all the work herself and sits down to eat the bread that the friends learn a very important lesson about friendship.

Ages:  All
Date: February 4
Time:  11:00 am - 12:30
Where:  Florence Little Theatre

Barnes and Noble Storytime

Miss Brooks Loves Books (And I Don't) by Barbara Bottner  With the help of Miss Brooks, Missy’s classmates all find books they love in the library—books about fairies and dogs and trains and cowboys. But Missy dismisses them all—“Too flowery, too furry, too clickety, too yippity.”
Still, Miss Brooks remains undaunted. Book Week is here and Missy will find a book to love if they have to empty the entire library. What story will finally win over this beastly, er, discriminating child? William Steig’s Shrek!—the tale of a repulsive green ogre in search of a revolting bride—of course!
Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley pay playful homage to the diverse tastes of child readers and the valiant librarians who are determined to put just the right book in each child’s hands.

Ages:  Ages 3 to t (book recommendation)

Online Storytime at Barnes and Noble

This month's book is "Snuggle Puppy" read by its author Sandra Boynton.

A great big hug in book form, Snuggle Puppy is a year-round valentine from parent to child. It is bright, chunky, a pleasure to hold, and has a die-cut cover that reveals a glimpse of the joy inside before it's even opened. Best of all, it's packed, of course, with pure Boynton: her inimitable language, her inimitable illustrations, her inimitable sense of fun. 

Snuggle Puppy's parent expresses love for his fuzzy little one through a kind of song that includes kisses.
