What's next for Ballymun Library Baby & Toddler Book Club

Printer-friendly version

Betsy goes to the DoctorLast week, the Baby Book Club read the story 'Who's on the Farm' by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.  The babies learned all about their favourite animal characters from the previous week's story What the Ladybird Heard using large fun flaps as the story was read.  The Farmer In the Dell was sung by the group following the story. Check out Who's on the Farm in the library catalogue.

With winter approaching and colds and flus more common, Betsy Goes to the Doctor by Helen Stephens was a perfect reading choice for the toddlers. In this story, poor Betsy has a sore ear.  Her trip to the Doctor turns out to be far more fun and exciting than she imagined.  She even gets a sticker at the end of the visit!!  This is an ideal story for reassuring little ones who might be nervous about the experience of visiting the Doctor.  We sang Miss Polly Had a Dolly to accompany the story.

Zeki loves baby clubNext Tuesday the 22 November, the Baby Book Club will read Zeki Loves Baby Club.  The author, Anna McQuinn, says:

"Everyone knows that babies and toddlers just love looking at images of other babies like themselves. They also enjoy seeing their everyday world in a story."

This story also contains a number of suggested songs and activities to do with your baby/toddler so is well worth a read!

Slug needs a hugThe toddlers will be treated to a very funny story entitled Slug Needs a Hug! by Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross. This book was shortlisted by the publisher, Scholastic, for the Laugh Out Loud Awards this year.  When you read it, you'll see why! 

Looking forward to seeing you!!  Maria
