Doreen Cronin is a favorite author here in the children’s department, so we were all excited to get her new Halloween offering: Click, Clack, Boo!
Click, Clack, Boo! is the newest installment in Cronin’s books about Farmer Brown and his mischevious animals who are always making a fool of him. Farmer Brown is not a fan of Halloween, especially when he hears mysterious noises coming from the farm. What could be making all those noises? What could the animals be up to this time? Come find out at our Halloween storytimes – Oct. 31 at 11:00 and 5:00. We’ll also read Hallo-weiner by Dav Pilkey, and sing Halloween songs. After storytime, kids can trick or treat in the library.
If you aren’t yet familiar with Farmer Brown’s animals (and even if you are!), be sure to stop by the children’s room to check out our early literacy stations this month. You can make a pizza for the hens, wash the pigs with Farmer Brown’s bubble bath, and learn to use a rotary telephone! These activities are all based on Giggle, Giggle, Quack also by Doreen Cronin. The farm animals are also featured in Click, Clack, Moo, Dooby Dooby Moo, Click Clack Quackity-Quack, Click, Clack, Splish, Splash, Thump, Quack, Moo, and Duck for President.
