Robot Karaoke!

Even after 70 stops, the excitement and energy at the last few story times are feeling as fresh as ever.

Today, the librarians at the Iowa City Public Library were there in full force to support superhero reading!

After story time I enjoyed a spot of tea with Iowa’s biggest Wild Kratts fan.

I also was able to spend a little time singing Karaoke with a couple of my favorite robots!

The Curtain Falls!

Of course, we also taught them to eat healthy foods!

My favorite part of the summer? There were robots waiting around every corner!

What a coincidence! Imagining, dreaming, reading, and flying are four of my favorite things!

Hot, Hot, Hot!

It was pretty warm this afternoon in Iowa City!

Luckily, the Iowa City Public Library was nice and cool!

We had “out of this world” fun at story time!

And some people even came to the event in their formal wear.
