Pike Road Afternoon Story Time

Description:  The theme for this summer’s reading program is “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!” which naturally suggests sports and fitness. We’re going to read some books that present a variation on that theme. This week, we’ll read about a chicken and a pig hanging ten…or rather claws and hooves in Surfer Chick by Kristy Dempsey and Henry Cole and Pig Kahuna by Jennifer Sattler.

Pike Road Afternoon Story Time
Event Location: Pike Road Branch Library

Description:  If you fall off your surfboard, you’re going to end up swimming, so, this week, we turn our attention to characters learning how to swim. Cats are not known for their love of water and Splat is no exception. We’ll see if he ever learns how to swim in Splish, Splash, Splat by Rob Scotton. Now, frogs, on the other hand, are usually around water, but Froggy doesn’t know how to swim. Can his mom teach him? The title just might give it away when we read Froggy Learns to Swim by Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz.
