Featured Member Post


As someone who does story time on almost a daily basis, I'm always looking for amazing books to share with the children and families that attend my programs. Here are ten of my favourites.

Rhyming Dust Bunnies

 Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas.

Actually any book by Jan Thomas, they are hilarious!


 Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes

I am in love with this book and all things Pete the Cat. If you have yet to experience a Pete the Cat book, you are missing out...

The Maggie B

 The Maggie B by Irene Haas. 

The earliest memory I have of my mom is her reading this book to me. I did a post last week about this on my blog

 The Kiss That Missed

 The Kiss that Missed by David Melling. 
My son's favourite book when he was age 3.


 There's An Alligator Under My Bed by Mercer Mayer. 

My all time favourite book for story time. I never get tired of sharing this one.


Shark In The Park

 Shark in the Park by Nick Sharratt.

So much fun, perfect to read out loud to large groups.


Smelly Socks

 Smelly Socks by Robert Munsch.

Laugh out loud funny.

 The Contest Between the Sun and the Wind: An Aesop's Fable

 The Contest Between the Sun and the Wind. 

I love this classic Aesop's fable. 

The illustrations in this are incredible.


 Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. This book is amazing. 

Also I have a giant crush on the brilliant (and dreamy) author.


How to Catch a Star
