One of our favorite stories this week.
Creepy Carrots! by Aaron Reynolds. Read by the author.
Craft: Make your own creepy carrot.
Call, email, or Facebook message the library for a craft kit with the pieces on colored paper to make your carrot. OR Download this template, color it, and cut it out. Glue the pieces together.
Extra fun for parents or older children: a visit with Peter Brown, the illustrator. NOTE: This video has a “Twilight Zone” vibe that may be a little scary for very young children>
