The monster under Ethan's bed has gone fishing for a week! How is Ethan ever going to get to sleep without a really scary monster? Will a stand-in monster do? Find out by listening to this amusing story read by Skidompha Library's own Terry Hapach.
A girl and her father take a moonlit, winter nighttime stroll near the farm where they live to listen and look for owls.
Bundled against the frosty air, they trudge through the pristine snow. A wonderful tension builds as the father imitates the great horned owl's call once without answer, then again.
Finally, from out of the darkness comes a reply, echoing through the trees!

Love You Forever is a Canadian picture book written by Robert Munsch and published in 1986. It tells the story of the evolving relationship between a boy and his mother. The book was written after Munsch and his wife had two stillborn babies. They have since become adoptive parents of three.
It was listed fourth on the 2001 Publishers Weekly All-Time Bestselling Children's Books list for paperbacks at 6,970,000 copies (not including the 1,049,000 hardcover copies). In 2001, Maria Shriver wrote in O, The Oprah Magazine: "I have yet to read this book through without crying. It says so much about the circle of life, youth, parenting, and our responsibility for our parents as we grow older. The message is so simple yet so profound. Love You Forever is a great gift for anyone with a child, or even for your own parents."Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children." - Wikipedia

This version was recorded by Dawn Greenleaf, Children's Librarian at Skidompha Library in 2015.
From the moment Alexander wakes up things just do not go his way. As he gets up, chewing gum that was in his mouth the night before winds up in his hair, he trips on his skateboard and drops his sweater into the sink while the water was running. At breakfast, his brothers, Anthony and Nick, reach into their cereal boxes and find amazing prizes, while he ends up with just cereal. Things go rapidly downhill from there.
A running gag throughout the book is Alexander repeating several times that he wants to move to Australia because he thinks it's better there. It ends with his mother's assurance that everybody has bad days, even those who live there. In the Australian and New Zealand versions, he wants to move to Timbuktu instead (presumably because he already lives in Australia).
In 1990 the book was adapted into a 25-minute animated musical television special that aired on HBO in the United States.
Illustrated by Ray Cruz. Read by Skidompha's summer librarian Dawn Greenleaf.
A mother bird leaves her egg in the nest to go look for some food. While she's gone, the egg hatches, and the baby bird sets off to find his mother - but he doesn't know what she looks like. His search leads him to ask a variety of animals and machines, "Are you my mother?" Finally, a crane deposits him back in his nest, where his mother is waiting. Just the right amount of tension and the happy and secure ending make this an extremely popular story. - From the Barnes & Noble description

This lesser-known but wonderful book starts off with a young boy who meets up with an old man in the middle of the Desert of Drize and the old man starts telling the boy about how there are more people less fortunate than he is and how he is lucky to be himself.
The real world message about how life can get really tough for people, but as long as you stay as yourself, you will always be lucky in getting through life is a very positive message for both children and adults!
For anyone who is not used to Dr. Seuss’ usual way with tongue twisters in his books, there are many places in where the wording gets a little crazy and it might be difficult for smaller children to follow on their own. Parents might want to listen along with this recording with their children so that they can help their children understand the tale.
This was wonderfully recorded by a good friend of Skidompha, Anna Belknap in January, 2016.
