Library Challenge for Pet Month at The Poppins Book Nook

Wow it is hard to believe that this is the last Poppins Book Nook for 2013!

This month’s theme was all about pets and it posed a big challenge! Nearly every trip to the library involves checking out at least a half dozen animal related books.
For this theme the books themselves became our activity.

Because I knew we couldn’t choose one I set the kids a library challenge. I asked them to make up a list of all the pets they could think of. We took our lists to the library and announced their task: Find a book that was about or featured each one of the animals on the list.
Mini Piwi, 3.5, had a time searching for books on the ipad catalogue search spot the library recently installed. I was really proud to see Miss K showing her little sis how to find books using the Dewey system

We ended up with quite a pile!

Here are our favorites:

Valentino Finds a Home

The Mixed-Up Chameleon

10 Little Hermit Crabs

Ferrets (Animal Planet Pet Care Library)

I'm a Frog! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)

I have collected all our pet activities together you can check them out on our 'All about Pets' board.
