This morning students were treated to a visit from our community librarian, Ryan. He is from Downsview Public Library.
Ryan did such a fabulous read-aloud with the new JK students on Welcome to Kindergarten Night, that I decided to invite him back to meet our current students. Mr. Wong’s children also came over to hear the stories and chants Ryan did today.
Some of the books Ryan shared with the children include: Big Bear Hug by Nicholas Oldland; Who Hops? by Katie David and Tanka, Tanka, Skunk by Steve Webb. We look forward to having Ryan visit again in the afternoon.
All of the books Ryan read are available at the Toronto Public Library. Please be sure to click on the link or check out their website on the Blogroll to find out about their programs and new children’s stories.
Our three closest libraries are Downsview Public Library on Keele St. just north of Wilson, Black Creek in the basement of Sheridan Mall and Sheppard, on Sheppard near Jane.
