Captain Underpants

Some books have fantastic websites built around them.  Here is the Captain Underpants site, made by Scholastic.  Not only does it have games and videos, but great ideas and tools to make your own comics, just like the ones Dave Pilkey has created!  If you make one you are really pleased with, you could bring it in to school to show the rest of us!

The Wonder of Books

Our favourite books are those that catch our imagination and make us feel as though we really are somewhere else - or even, someone else!
Peter Pan has been a much-loved story since the book was first published in 1911.  This Peter Pan poster is also a little magical.  There is something special about it if you look closely.  Really closely....

Come into the library this week and see if you can tell what it is!

Story Time

One of the nicest things about winter is snuggling up with a good story.  Here is one of my favourites from our library picture book collection, Dog Loves Books - read by British actress Alison Steadman -  to start off a wonderful Term 3!
