Pick up this month’s book with interactive elements that go along with the story at the Aurora or Dillsboro library today! As you read, there are items in the book bag that have page numbers on them and when you reach that page, you will open that item and interact with the story!
December’s book is Willodean by Kathrine Applegate.
Willodeen, an eleven-year-old girl, loves all animals, but her favorites are the weird creatures known as “screechers,” who are among the least endearing in the world. Although the residents of Perchance regard the creatures as pests or even monsters, Willodeen thinks they play an important part in the intricate natural system. But lately, nature has become very agitated, not a single Hummingbear has made it back to Perchance this year, and nobody knows why. Willodeen is resolved to speak out for the animals she loves and maybe even solve the mystery of the disappearing hummingbears when a homemade birthday gift brings unexpected magic to her and her new buddy, Connor.
Bags can be picked up at Aurora at the lower level desk and at Dillsboro.
Snacks and Drinks will be provided.
