We’re making up for lost time with a new batch of Summer Reading story and craft videos! We’ve got animals from antelope to zebra, a story about what happens when boys and girls don’t quite see eye-to-eye, and an origami project to make an elephant face. We have one more set of videos lined up for the final week of Summer Reading, so please look forward to them!

Amy reads What About Me?, written and illustrated by Ed Young and published by Philomel Books. A young boy wants knowledge, so he seeks out the Grand Master to teach him. The Grand Master tells the boy to bring him a small carpet. What could this mean? Afterwards, make your own small carpet with paper, yarn, and beads.
Amy reads First Painter, by Kathryn Lasky with illustrations from Rocco Baviera, published by Dorling Kindersley Publishing.
The moon of the Singing Grass has come and gone three times and still there is no rain. Mishoo’s people are relying on her to catch a strong dream and bring rain.
Afterwards, try out your own “cave painting” with wrinkled paper, crayons, and your imagination.
