From the Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child website:
Stop Snoring, Bernard!, a delightful book written and illustrated by Zachariah OHora for children ages 3 to 6, is Pennsylvania's One Book, Every Young Child 2012 selection. This year's program officially kicks off on March 27, 2012.
Published in 2011, this engaging book follows the loveable sea otter Bernard as he tries to find a place in the zoo where his loud snoring won't disturb the other animals.Stop Snoring, Bernard! encourages young readers to appreciate what makes each of us different. Stop Snoring, Bernard! is OHora's first book for children and it is the recipient of the 2011 Society of Illustrator's Founders Award.
This year the Lansdowne Public Library celebrated the One Book with two special storytimes. We used items from the Traveling Trunk (available in May for anyone to book) and created a space for children and their families to learn about otters and other animals. We set up the community room; below are pictures of the stations we created.
If you'd like to read Stop Snoring, Bernard! Stop by your local library. If you are in Lansdowne, we have a two copies of the book available to check out.
