Catch the Reading Bug

Summer is almost here and we're celebrating at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library with our annual Summer Reading Program for children ages 5-12. This year's theme is "Catch the Reading Bug!" - so we're reading about all things buggy. Stop by the Library and pick up a summer reading bag containing a reading log, pencil, sticker and bookmarks. Check out the Library's summer reading schedule of programs and events here.

Start this summer off with a buggy tale:

The Very Lazy Ladybug by Isobel Finn and Jack Tickle (Tiger Tales, 2001)

"A lazy ladybug who never learned how to fly decides she wants to go somewhere, but she cannot find an animal to give her a peaceful ride."

I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly retold and illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott (Little Brown, 1980)

"A cumulative folk song in which the solution proves worse than the predicament when an old lady swallows a fly."

For more buggy reads, stop by the Library and ask a Youth Services Librarian.

** Stay tuned for more information about the Curious George Reading Program for ages 0-4 coming this summer to your Library!
