Winter Early Literacy Newsletter

Winter Wonderland

It might not be snowing here in town, but last night's wind and rain definitely made me want to stay inside and find something good to read. Perhaps you, too, are looking for something new to read on rainy days like these. You'll find suggestions from the Youth Services Librarians in the latest edition of the Early Literacy Newsletter here. If you're a fan of children's book illustrations, you might also want to check out my list of favorites from 2011 that I posted a few weeks ago here.

Hi, can i ask you something? I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like Wolf (or fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Great blog, by the way!

Thanks Nelly! You might take a look at "Good Little Wolf" by Nadia Shireen. Here's the summary: "Rolf is proud when his friend, Mrs. Boggins, calls him a good little wolf, but when the Big Bad Wolf teases him Rolf tries to prove himself by howling at the moon and blowing down Little Pig's house." There's an illustration of the wolf with a full, fat stomach at the end.
