Welcome to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Children's Room!

Ms. Clara Webber was the first children's librarian of Pomona Public Library. A long time correspondent with Mrs. Laura Ingalls Wilder, she was instrumental in having the Children's Room named in honor of Mrs. Wilder on May 25, 1950. Today, we house the original hand written manuscript for the novel Little Town on the Prairie. Every February, we host the Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable in honor of Mrs. Wilder's February 7th birthday.

New Books at PPL

Good mid-week young Pomonans! It's getting closer to the weekend. :)

These are pictures of new books we got into the library. I used them yesterday in story time. The first one, "What's the Time Grandma Wolf" by Ken Brown is very cute. Several different animals visit Grandma Wolf and each of them asks her what time it was. Eventually is is dinner time and instead of eating the animals she serves them chicken soup and reads them their favorite story. The illustrations are good and picture Grandma Wolf with big white teeth. It is a familiar story with a nice twist at the end.

The second one is "Shoo Fly", by Iza Trapani, is a take off of an old song. It pictures a very cute fly annoying a mouse.

Next is "Butterfly", by Petr Horaek, featuring bright colors. A little girl is playing with a beautiful butterfly which she temporarily loses and finds lots of insects along her way. She ends finding the butterfly being a pop-up on the last page.

Lastly, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", is also a take of of an old song. The illustrations are bright and clear and this ends with baseball facts on the last page.

We have copies of these that check out as well as in our Storyhour Collection. Come in and check them out!

Joke of the day: How did the trumpet do when he auditioned for the orchestra?
Answer: He blew it. :)
