Meet Mr. Wiggle, a friend to young library patrons, just waiting to show them the joys of the library.
Introducing the library to young patrons can be a challenge. Incorporating a story that will allow time to explain the particulars of your library and book check-out all within 30 minutes sometimes seems impossible. Mr. Wiggle the book worm comes to your rescue in this rhyming story. Carol Thompson has written Mr. Wiggle's Library for specifically for the pre-school through first grade patron. Bobbie Houser's illustrations are done in a simple style and kid friendly pastels that suit the relaxed format of the book. This is a gentle introduction to the library and all the wonders it offers.
This is part of a series of books about Mr. Wiggle, his love of reading and his library use. At the beginning of the school year I read this book, followed the next week with Paula Craig & Carol Thompson's book Mr. Wiggle's Book This story features realistic illustrations of damaged pages. It is very useful in demonstrating how to care for books, especially library books that we shared with others.
I highly recommend these two books and the whole Mr. Wiggle series for librarians serving young patrons.
