Battle of the Books is heating up!

Score of today’s practice

Our Battle of the Books team has been reading and practicing all summer. At today’s meeting we had one practice match; girls versus boys, as they requested. The Cellos (girls) beat the Lemons (boys), but not by much. Everyone is really getting to know those books!

We also had a discussion of team names. Some pretty crazy names were mentioned. We’ll vote at our next meeting.

Only 8 weeks until the Battle!

All about school

Books about going to school

Our summer programs are coming to an end this week. Some of our Ready, Set, Kindergarten! crowd will be in school on Tuesday afternoons in the fall, so our last storytime was all about school!

We read some fun books, we sang The Wheels on the School Bus, and lots more. All the kids who have already been to school agreed that they LOVE school! And their favorite part of school? Teachers!!

All the kids also got a school bus and added passengers and more. Some of the kids put their families on the school bus, too.

The Case of the Summergreen Killer: Mystery Solved!

Who murdered Bernadette, the Children’s Librarian, with a poisoned donut? The Case of the Summergreen Killer was successfully solved last Wednesday night during the OPL Children’s Room Murder Mystery Theater. Inspector Sherlumbo (Children’s Librarian Kevin Robinson) came up with eight likely suspects. Then he enlisted the help of some very thorough detectives to interrogate all of them in order to figure out who committed the deadly deed. Detectives Laya and Mohamed guessed correctly that it was the evil library director, Mr. Krupp. Since Laya was the first to guess correctly, she won the reward. Luckily, it was all pretend and we ended the program by snacking on donuts (of course). To see all of the photos of the program, click here.

Animals are superheroes, too!

Some books about animal superheroes

In keeping with our theme of heroes this summer, this week we read some books about animal superheroes. There are some amazing animals in books, both real and made up. We also played a game and pretended to be different kinds of animals. And we sang, danced, and more! We also talked a little about what attributes a superhero should have.

After the stories, all the kids made their own made-up animal superheroes. Not sure how the hats help!
