Tick Tock Goes The Clock!

As we approach the end of the 2014 Reading Road Trip, it’s time to start thanking everybody who has taken a “leap of faith” by attending story time!

All of the librarians, including the ones from today’s stop at the Robert W. Barlow Memorial Library in Iowa Falls, have been as sweet as honey to me.

With this summer’s “Fizz! Boom! Read!” theme, kids everywhere have developed a new appreciation for science and learning at the library!

Tomorrow, my travels around the state [...]

33 Finished, 33 Remain!

As many of you know, tensions between me and the dragons have quickly escalated this week! Last night, after hours of negotiations, the leader of the dragons and I agreed to a truce.

A written agreement is now in place assuring that dragons and humans will live in harmony with each other for eternity.

This morning, hundreds of people came out to the Huxley Public Library to see the signing of this historic armistice. The crowd decided to stick around for story [...]

Real or Imaginary?

This afternoon I wasn’t sure if things were real or imaginary at the Iowa Falls Public Library. Was this a real or imaginary penguin?

I Do Love a Good Swing Set!

Yesterday morning’s story time wasn’t in the Waverly Public Librarybut in the elementary school building next door!

That’s because the floods had relocatedWaverly City Hall to the library’s story time room!

Of course, that meant we got to play on all the school’s playground equipment!

My favorite part was the swing set!

The Iowa Falls Public Library had swings outside too,but they were tougher to swing on!

I quickly learned that everyone in Iowa Falls loves to read!

Even these two octopus brothers!

And after story time? [...]
