#blogbookaday: Pig the Pug

11 Mar

22735715.jpgSummary:  “Pig is the greediest Pug in the world. He is ill-tempered, rude and unreasonable. When Pig the Pug is asked to share his toys, something unexpected happens. Hopefully Pig has learned a lesson!” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: In this brief picture book you’ll meet Pig the Pug and Trevor the wiener dog. Pig is not interested in sharing in the least – everything he has he wants to hoard, not share with Trevor. Pig builds a mountain of all his things and when he climbs to the very top, he has an accident. Trevor shares Pig’s toys while Pig recovers and hopefully learns his lesson in the process.

Personal Reaction: The illustrations in this story absolutely make the story – they are so funny – with an overweight Pug with crazy eyes and a little winer dog who just wants to have fun together! The illustrations are sure to make your kids chuckle out loud and maybe learn why sharing can be more fun than having toys, but not enjoying them! This is also the first in the series, so make sure you check out some of the other titles as well!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!

Sunday Storytime Challenge #4

12 Oct

I got a chance to spend last week at two separate conferences which means I spent a lot of time sharing ideas with fellow youth services librarians.  I spent Sunday – Wednesday at our state conference – PaLA.  I got the chance to present an elementary school age program that occurs once a month and I spent a lot of time with peers from librarians around the state.  It’s been a few years going to conferences and this year was the first time I felt like I really knew a number of librarians and I was comfortable enough to talk to people for four days.  I’m an introvert, so small talk and networking is difficult for me, but this year was a lot easier than it has been in the past.  I believe it’s partially because I’m part of a committee for the state library where I’ve been meeting with librarians from around the state twice a year for the past few years, which gives me an automatic connection at the conference.

I then traveled home Wednesday afternoon, worked Wednesday evening and Thursday and got up very early on Friday to travel to Baltimore for KidLitCon.  This was a different group of people – some librarians, but others are booksellers, authors, and more.  The conference itself is a 2-day conference for children and young adult book bloggers.  I got to meet a lot of people that I’ve interacted with online, but have never met in the real world.  It was a long couple of days, but I learned a lot about a variety of issues relating to book blogging and got the chance to meet some awesome people.

And as for sharing ideas, I love this idea because I’m the type of person to share my own ideas, but to also find out about programs from other libraries that I can adapt for my own, which is one the greatest things about being a librarian – we are all willing to share what we know!
