Virtual Storytime

November 2

We are starting the month of November with a couple of stories to honor American Indian Heritage Month. We begin with Knots on a Counting Rope by Bill Martin Jr. This story is told by the warmth of a campfire beneath a starry night sky, a Navajo youth named Boy-Strength-of-Blue-Horses listens to the tale of his birth from his grandfather. Although blind, the boy learns that he has the strength to cope with his condition and meet any challenge that comes his way. https://storylineonline.net/books/knots-on-a-counting-rope/

Zombies Don’t Eat Veggies!

Mo Romero is a zombie who loves nothing more than growing, cooking, and eating vegetables. Tomatoes? Tantalizing. Peppers? Pure perfection! The problem? Mo’s parents insist that their niño eat only zombie cuisine, like arm-panadas and finger foods. They tell Mo over and over that zombies don’t eat veggies. But Mo can’t imagine a lifetime of just eating zombie food and giving up his veggies.
