The Bus For Us: #OBEYC 2013

Eight years ago a reading initiative was launched in Pennsylvania. The One Book, Every Young Child Initiative was designed to get books into the hands of children across the state of Pennsylvania and The Library participated with three events.

First we co-hosted The Bus Route for Us, a collaborative event with Darby Free Library, Sharon Hill Library, Glenolden Library  Ridley Park Library, Norwood Public Library and the Preschool and Toddler Outreach Coordinators for Delaware County Library System.

Below is a video created by Miss Abbe.

At the library we held two storyhours.
During Wee Reads we read a transportation themed stories in THREE languages!
We read The Bus for Us by Suzanne Bloom.
The Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort
Goodnight, goodnight, construction site by Sherri Duskey Rinker
We had Miss Gabrielle sign, Ms. Bellus read in Spanish and Miss Rachee read in English.

For our second storyhour we used the traveling trunk that accompanies the book. The trunk has great activities inspired by the book.
