The Book Edge

By April Hernandez

Lincoln Library Fact: We have a section in the Library called Inspirastation. It contains items such as Learning to Tie Knots, Yo-Yo Tricks, and Snap Circuits. We will be adding items to this section when we can. You must check the items out before use and use them in the Library.

Story Hour: The theme this week was Spiders. Robin read One, Two, Poohís Looking For You. Judy read A Spiderling Grow Up, The Eensy-Weensy Spider, The Very Busy Spider, and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. The children performed two action songs: The Eensy-Weensy Spider and Put Your Spider on Your Nose (using spider rings). Keep an eye out for funny looking spiders as the craft was making spiders out of Tootsie Pops and pipe cleaners.

Janís Time for Trivia: Which 1908 novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery is considered a childrenís novel?
