Humeston Public Library

This blog is written by a librarian in a small town in south central Iowa. Originally, this blog began as a reader's advisory to highlight some of the great reads available to loan to our library patrons. However, the focus of the blog was too narrow so I have changed the address and now include anything involving our local library on this blog site. Enjoy!

I have begun a new outreach project for the Humeston Public Library. Twice a month I lead activity time at the local preschool and 2 area daycare centers. I have so much fun working with kids age 2 to 5. Today I was at the preschool and I read the story Baghead by Jarrett J. Krosoczka. This cute book tells about how a young boy spends an entire day with a brown bag on his head. He manages to do all of his normal activities throughout the day. Finally his sister asks why he is wearing the bag and he reveals that he cut his own hair and the result was not very good. This book has great illustrations and it a story that kids can really connect with. I just hope none of the kids I read to today go home and cut their hair.
