Spot goes to the parkLast Tuesday,  Ballymun Baby Book Club read ‘Spot Goes to the Park’ by Eric Hill.  This is a lovely, simple story about a dog called Spot.  Spot and his friends go to the park and do all kinds of activities there.  This book also has a lift-the-flap feature on each page which the babies loved.  Eric Hill has written a number of books for babies about the character Spot.  If you like this series, then check out the list of books already read by the Book Club for more titles.

Toddler Book Club

Nappy Duck and Potty PiggyWe returned to the theme of potty training in last Tuesday’s session by reading ‘Nappy Duck and Potty Piggy’ by Bernette Ford and Sam Williams.  As mentioned in previous blog posts, your local library has lots of books available to help children learn new experiences. This is a cute nappy-to-potty story about a duck who wants to copy his grown-up friend, Piggy, by learning how to use the potty.  If you’re looking for more books on toilet training, check out the First Experiences section in Ballymun Junior Library.

We will have special Easter-themed sessions for both book clubs next Tuesday, 4th April.  The Baby Book Club will read ‘Easter Counting’ by Barbara Barbieri McGrath and Peggy Tagel.  This is another brightly illustrated book which teaches little ones about the concept of counting in a simple and fun way.  It’s a perfect read for Easter!

Easter readsThe Toddler Book Club will read ‘The Great Easter Egg Scramble’ by Timothy Knapman and David Walker.  This is a funny little story about the Easter Bunny’s desperate attempts to deliver eggs to his friends after forgetting to send them in the first place!

We hope to have a very special visitor to the Library next Tuesday!!  Maria Sheahan (Book Club Facilitator) has invited the Easter Bunny to visit the Library early morning and leave some goodies for our special Book Club attendees.  Join us for what promises to be a really fun-filled event!

Next Tuesday, 4th April, will be the last session of the book clubs before Easter.  We’ll be back on the 25th April with more great books!!  See you then.
