Have Book- Will Travel!

Have Book- Will Travel… that’s our Summer Reading theme this year! More information about Fox River Valley Public Library District’s program and special events can be found here.

This week, I did a “Transportation” storytime to correspond with our theme. It went really well!

I hope that everyone has a summer full of adventure 🙂

*Five Fast Race Cars (Source unknown)
Five fast race cars speeding round the track.
The first car said, “I can’t look back!”
The second car said, “Oh, no! I’m out of gas!”
The third car said, “Beep! Beep! I’m fast!”
The fourth car said, “Watch my tires spin.”
The fifth car said, “Vroom, vroom. I win!”
Then beep went a horn and flash went the lights,
And five fast race cars sped out of sight!
