Everyone Loves Clifford!

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of accompanying Clifford the Big Red Dog to the Sioux City Public Museum!

Any time I get to do story time with the world’s most beloved canine, he is always the center of attention.

I don’t mind that he steals the stage. I’ve never really developed a taste for dog bones!

Before I left, I was given a sneak peek of their new dinosaur exhibit!

Scuba-Bear Saves the Day!

Who had fun in Le Mars and Sioux City today? I did!

At the Le Mars Public Library this morning there was a fish emergency! All the fish tanks were missing something very important! That’s right, the fish!

Luckily, my good friend Scuba-Bear came to the rescue.

Later, at the Sioux City Public Library, I found out the kids are strong and [...]

A Big Pair of Scissors!

This morning, before I started story time at the Le Mars Public Library I needed to do something very important.

Get a haircut, of course!

With my new haircut I felt like I could travel the world in style.

And I felt like my old super-hero self again.

The next stop today was the  Sioux City Public Library.

Story time is always a careful balance between fun and learning.

My favorite part is the fun!

And my story times are certainly fun for all ages.

A giant beehive at the Orange City Public Library?I don’t seem to remember that being there last year!

I do remember them putting me to work, though!

Hey! Nobody called me to tell me it was brown shirt day!

Luckily, it looks like I did such a good job at yesterday’s story timethat they painted a portrait of me! At least I think it’s me…

Yesterday afternoon so many kids showed up to story time at the Sioux City Public Librarythat we [...]
