When I returned to work from the depths of spit up, I had quite a bit of catching up to do in my Feedly. After two days back, my library flooded and was closed indefinitely. Luckily, I have finally made it through hundreds of blog posts and pulled the following gems for you, my darling friends.

While the move happened in October, I just recently discovered that Matthew Winner, the Busy Librarian, co-founded the fanciful site: All the Wonders.The fantastic Let’s Get Busy podcasts are still happening, but the new site includes book related crafts, song adaptations from Emily Arrow, and whimsical insights into the world of children’s books.

Our very own Holly created a delightful Choose Your Own Adventure program that had me thinking about a way to use that concept for the Storytime crowd. Katrina at Keen Librarianship must have read my mind! I have fallen in love with the Storytime – You Choose idea!

 

I will leave you with this happy baby and a ton of quick picks!
