Last week was National Library Week, and we had so much fun celebrating in the library on Saturday! The theme for National Library Week was: Create Your Own Story. It was the perfect opportunity to have a family of authors come talk to us about how to make stories! We loved seeing the pictures of West Palm Beach (and our library) in Where do My Shoes Go? as Julia, Emily and Ainsley Miller shared their picture books with us! Thank you Julia, Emily, and Ainsley! We love your stories! You inspired us to think about the stories we can tell!
We also created our own very own stories too! Check out the stories we made!
Taylor is 4 and she showed us how she plays the flute when she visits the library.
After Julia took her picture she drew what her story was about. Her dad helped her write down what she wanted the story to say. Her story says “Taylor was playing the flute and Strawberry Strawberry was helping her.” Hooray for Taylor!
Brianna is 6, and she thought of a story about a monkey in the jungle.
Here she is writing and illustrating her story!
Lila is 4, and she told a story about a tiger that was falling down! Watch out below!
Lennon, 5, said the name of his story is “Where is my telephone?” Lennon likes stories superheroes. He is a super guy!
Diana is 10 and called her story “Apple”
Sadie, 5, shows us her tiger. He was looking at us from inside his fort. This is the very same tiger from one of Julia, Emily and Ainsley’s stories! He came to visit the library in his favorite shirt.
Sebastian, 9, said his story was about penguins watching him on the computer. Sebastian writes in journals at home! Go for it Sebastian! Keep those stories coming!
Quintin, 6, wanted this picture called “Double Trouble”. Sounds suspenseful!
Joey, 5, told us that his story is about a boy who visits the library and likes to read about robots.
Joey’s brother, age 9, wanted his story to be about Percy Jackson. Those two loved hanging out together!
Here’s a story about traveling to space! Sounds like quite an adventure!
