September 19th is "Talk like a Pirate Day."

Ahoy, Me Hearties! Have you ever wanted to be a pirate?  If so, take note that September 19th is "Talk Like a Pirate Day!"  You will not want to miss this opportunity to express your inner Cap'n, buccaneer or privateer. To get you in the spirit I have complied a list of fun books to enjoy.

This Week in Twilight Tales: School Days

Many children started school this week with first-day jitters. So, during family storytime,  we read fun books about school days. One of my favorites, is The Three Silly Girls Grubb by John and Ann Hassett. The children adore this fractured fairytale, which is loosely based off of the classic Three Billy Goats Gruff.  Everyone was laughing themselves silly, and we had a wonderful time. Afterwards, children enjoyed making storyboards of the classic fairytale.
