The Bravest Baby in Iowa!

All summer I’ve been waiting for my family to attend story time! Today, they stopped to see me at the Johnston Public Library!

Just before story time was about to start, the building’s foundation began to crumble and a few of us fell through all the dirt, worms, and ants. We ended up landing in the catacombs under the library!

We had to navigate our way in and out of a maze of sarcophagi.

And just when we thought we had discovered a [...]

Darth Vader Strikes!

I had hoped this morning’s story times at the Johnston Public Library would go smoothly.

But, my nose sensed there was something that “smelled” a little strange. I was certain it was the exhaust from a Star Destroyer.

I was right! Darth Vader had landed in the library and was looking for a duel!

Luckily, he was no match for a Jedi such as myself. I had three great options for flying to my second stop of the day!

There were many familiar faces [...]

It’s Time to Spin the Wheel!

The Johnston Public Library was filled to capacity this morning during story time!

Since IPTV and the library are both located in the same city, they let me have a free spin on their prize wheel!

After my walk, it was off to the Johnston Public Library for adventure on the high seas!

Why is it everyone covers their eyes when I drive the pirate ship?

I navigated the pirate ship to my next destination: The Ericson Public Library in Boone! We made such a [...]

Of Mice and Men…

You never know what you might find when you enter the VIP door at the Johnston Public Library.

I ran into some fellow stars.

And some fellow mice.

Later today, at the West Des Moines Public Library, they were holding a hippo dance-a-thon.

And I can’t resist a good dance contest!

I took home two trophies!

This week’s Kids Art is:  “Dan Wardell” by Addie.

“Martha Speaks” by Tavia.

“Word Girl” by Lydia.

“Dan and Gabe” by Gabe.
