Notes from Storytime

Froodle Sproodle

FroodleDo you ever make up nonsense words? The book Froodle by Antoinette Portis has tons of them! After you read the bird’s silly words in the story, play a game to make up some of your own! Phonological awareness involves understanding that words are made up of smaller sounds. When they have this skill, children are able to think about how words sound, separate from what they mean.

Leroy Ninker Saddles Up by Kate DiCamillo

Cover image for Leroy Ninker saddles upIf you like Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson series you will love this spin-off.  It stars Leroy Ninker, a wanna-be cowboy, who works at a drive-in theater.  When his co-worker mentions he has everything he needs to be a real cowboy except the horse he answers a want ad looking for a buyer of a horse “really cheap”. Well, it is love at first sight.  Of course, Leroy has no idea how to take care of a horse so the adventure begins.
