Pirate Ship Mishap!

All my friends at the Coralville Public Library are aware that reading gives you superpowers!

Some of my favorite superpowers include the ability to turn invisible!

Being able to transfer into a flying pig is also a very impressive power in my book!

But, my absolute most prized superpower of them all is to share a good laugh with a crowd of rascals!

My second story time of the day was brought to you by the letters A and L. Add a P in [...]

The Day it Rained Shovels!

Perhaps I should not have stopped to take a drink from that broken water main on my way to the Coralville Public Library!

And we definitely had a FUN story time!

I wish it could have lasted longer, [...]

Underwater Adventure?

I had to take a bike to my next stop at the Hiawatha Public Library. When I got [...]

Momma Frog and the Froglings!

The Coralville Public Library set a record for themselves this morning! Their crowds were bigger than at any other time that I’ve visited.

There was even one cool momma frog in the audience who seemed to have fun.

She brought all her baby froglings!

With five froglings, a stroller with two seats isn’t nearly enough!

All it took was a quick pony ride to get to the Newton Public Library.

Luckily, I do love outside story time in the warm summer weather.

The sun’s awesome powers [...]
