-I discovered this book earlier this year and decided to use it for a pajama time storytime. It's a great book for storytime. The text is simple and the illustrations are bright and colorful and perfect for a larger crowd.
The story is about a young boy who is about to go to bed, but can't find his rabbit. He decides he must venture into the woods. Along the way he comes across several scary things-a bear, giants, and a three headed dragon-only to discover that they're not scary at all. Instead they need the boys help in some way.
This is a great read about conquering your fears and using your imagination. It was lots of fun to read in storytime and I recommend it as a read aloud!
Where's Walrus by Stephen Savage
-Where's Walrus is a wordless picture book about a Walrus who goes on an adventure around town and the zookeeper who tries to catch him. The illustrations have a retro feel, which I love. Walrus's adventures are hilarious and he's easy enough to spot for younger readers. I read this with my two-year-old niece and she had a blast pointing out where Walrus was on each page. A wonderfully fun book for a lapsit with toddlers and preschoolers.
