I have long enjoyed using Jan Brett's stories and beautifully illustrated books, along with her incredible "teachers aides" she kindly shares. I read her stories all year long, but in the winter months she is a staple. December brings a weekly Jan Brett story hour here to Freedom Pond during Moon Child story times.

Also available are Readers Circle events. Like a book club (or Storyteller Moon ORBS), without having read the book first! Designed for Picture Book, Blooming, and Young Readers, I read aloud and the participants follow along, or take turns reading, then we discuss the book, and do activities related to the books. Just like the ORBS, books are also purchased through me at a 20% discount.
