Blueberries for Sal is a children's picture book by Robert McCloskey. It was awarded the Caldecott Honor in 1949. This story features a little girl, Sal, and her mother as they go and pick blueberries for winter—and a bear cub and his mother as they go and eat berries for winter from the other side of the same hill. Set in a small town in Maine this picture book piece uses a single dark blue color and block printing for the illustrations. Sal and Sal's mother are modeled after McCloskey's daughter, Sally, and wife Peggy. This story was recorded by Senator Angus King, of Maine, for Skidompha Library on April 17, 2017.

This is the story of Fred, a female cat, why she was named Fred, and what she had to do to earn back the friendship of Susie, her best friend. It's an amazing story. Cats can be very talented, and Fred was no exception.

This story was written by one of Skidompha's dearest friends, Bob Emmons, and read by Mal Gormley.

Room on the Broom is a British children's book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson, and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. In this lightweight tale, by the author of The Gruffalo, a witch on a broom-ride is soon accompanied by a cat, a dog, a parrot, and a frog who have helped the butter-fingered witch retrieve her hat, a ribbon, and her wand. After the broom breaks, they then meet up with a not-so-scary dragon who wants to have the witch for lunch. The loyal animals form a chimera who scares off the dragon.

The witch repays her friends by conjuring a nicer broom for them all to ride. The story's rhyming and goofy suspense aren't groundbreaking, but readers will likely find it refreshing to see a clumsy witch. Ages 4-8. Published by Dial Books.

Room on the Broom has been translated into 21 languages and has won 6 book awards, and since been made into an animated film. The animated film was nominated for an Academy Award for best short animated film in 2013.

This version was read by Skidompha Library's Terry Hapach with her usual great enthusiasm.

The eponymous Yertle, king of the pond, stands on his subjects in an attempt to reach higher than the moon—until the unhappy bottom turtle burps and Yertle falls into the mud, ending his rule.

Though the book included "burp", a word then considered to be relatively rude, it was a success upon publication, and has since sold over a million copies. In 2001, it was listed at 125 on the Publishers Weekly list of the best-selling children's books of all time.

This story is wonderfully read by Skidompha's good friend Anna Belknap in August 2016.

"The Sneetches and Other Stories" is a collection of stories by American author Dr. Seuss, published in 1953. It is composed of four separate stories with themes of tolerance, diversity, and compromise.

In "Too Many Daves" is a very short story about a mother, Mrs. McCave, who named all 23 of her sons Dave. This causes minor problems in the family, and the majority of the story lists unusual and amusing names she wishes she had given them, such as "Bodkin Van Horn," "Hoos Foos," "Snimm," "Shadrach", "Stuffy," "Stinky," "Putt-Putt", "Buffalo Bill," "Oliver Boliver Butt," "Biffalo Buff," or "Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate".

The story ends with the statement that "she didn't do it, and now it's too late."

"The Sneetches and Other Stories" is a collection of stories by American author Dr. Seuss, published in 1953. It is composed of four separate stories with themes of tolerance, diversity, and compromise.

In The Sneetches, some odd yellow creatures have stars in the bellies and others don't, which causes jealousy by those who don't. Sylvester McMonkey McBean (the Fix-It-Up Chappie) appears and offers the Sneetches without stars the chance to get them with his Star-On machine. When the original starred Sneetches see this they are upset and....

In the end, the Sneetches learn from their experience that neither plain-belly nor star-belly Sneetches are superior, and they are able to get along and become friends.

"The Sneetches" was intended by Seuss as a satire of discrimination between races and cultures, and was inspired by his opposition to antisemitism.

This story is wonderfully read by Skidompha's good friend Anna Belknap in August 2016.

This program showcases some of the better known early British blues bands.
