This Week in Twilight Tales: School Days

Many children started school this week with first-day jitters. So, during family storytime,  we read fun books about school days. One of my favorites, is The Three Silly Girls Grubb by John and Ann Hassett. The children adore this fractured fairytale, which is loosely based off of the classic Three Billy Goats Gruff.  Everyone was laughing themselves silly, and we had a wonderful time. Afterwards, children enjoyed making storyboards of the classic fairytale.

This Week in History: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin's big words : the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by  Doreen Rappaport

 I love reading books about history, but that was not always the case.  As a child, most of my history lessons came from textbooks which I found utterly boring. It was not until my Mother took me to the local library that I realized "history" was not just about facts and dates.
