By now all the area students are well into their fall semester back at school. Our after school story time, Story Port, has an open registration all fall so if you’re still curious it’s not too late to check it out! If your favorite early reader wants or needs more practice, the library has an entire section devoted to beginning readers, plus we always have a new selection with our rotating early reader section.
This week’s review is of a title for those just beginning to read. Pup and Hound Hatch an Egg by Susan Hood tells a fun story in few words. It’s spring on the farm, and Pup watches as new families spring up everywhere. Pup wants to play with the new young ones, but each mama says no. Baby lamb, kitten, filly, chick, and mouse are all too young to play. So, Pup sadly walks down the lane to the edge of the woods where Hound comforts the lonely Pup. Just then Pup spies an egg! Hound and Pup carefully roll the egg to Duck, and then to Hen but the egg is not theirs! So, Pup and Hound cuddle the egg until with a crickety-crack the egg pops open! It isn’t a duckling or a chick! What is it? Come to the library and check out the book to find out who and what Pup’s new friend is.
You can get the book reviewed here and more great titles in both our permanent and rotating collection to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit
