Last Stop On the Reindeer Express – Maude Powell-Tuck, 2018
It Came In The Mail – Ben Clanton, 2016
We welcome you to another edition of weekend story time! This weekend, we take a peek at Maude Powell-Tuck’s Last Stop On the Reindeer Express, a brand new holiday book that is itself a love letter to sending messages of love through the mail. Bonus: piled with peekaboo cut-outs, flaps for little fingers to lift and a feast of details for the eyes. Afterwards, we’ll read a bit more before letting the children have a turn writing to someone special. Come join us in the kids’ section for a sweet weekend storytime.
*Special note for parents: As usual, we’ll have related extra books on hand in case you are looking for other excellent picture books we recommend! Particular emphasis is placed on striking illustrations, great graphic design or standout writing. Titles may be brand new, old treasures, from home, our Kids’ Section or the library, but they are always picked with love and a sense of adventure. If there’s a book you’d love, consider our ordering service!
It’ll be about a 45 minute read with something fun for the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
All ages are welcome.
On Sunday mornings, bring your kids and infuse them with a love of reading.
