Story Time with Shannon

We’re reading “The Thank You Book,” and “Big Cat, Little Cat” and talking about being thankful for the people in our lives and appreciating good things, and about dealing with loss. The craft is a multilayered construction paper star with the name of someone you appreciate in it. Join us on Thursday at 10:30am on our Facebook page @HarrisLibrary.

Story Times by Celebrities

Looking for more read-alouds to listen to? The LA Times recently shared a list of celebrities reading children’s books for special Story Times. Some of the individual links are below in case you can’t access the Times right now. Celebrities may also pitch their other work either before or after the reading, so please be aware there is technically commercial content.

Watch Jennifer Garner read The Mitten .

Watch Josh Gad read The Giving Tree (this book’s a personal favorite of Shannon and Anne’s–oh, the feels!). As a note, Josh does pitch his current show at the end.

Watch Molly Idle read Pearl about a mermaid. Molly does mention her other books at the beginning.

Watch Amy Adams read The Dinosaur Princess. As a note, Amy does make a pitch for her nonprofit in the beginning.

Rowboat Watkins reads his book Most Marshmallows.

Sarah Jacoby reads Forever and a Day.

You can follow the hashtag #OperationStoryTime on Instagram to find more people reading their books or a friend’s.
