November is Picture Book Month

November is Picture Book Month and here at the WSPL we are celebrating by displaying some of our favorite picture books here at the library. Every Thursday during the month of November we have been highlighting a few picture books on the blog. This is our last installment. Tomorrow marks the beginning of December so we are featuring a few Christmas picture books. All of these picture books can be found at WSPL, stop by and check one out today!



Red and Lulu

Separation and miles cannot keep a determined cardinal from his loved one in an ode to serendipity and belief that is destined to be a new Christmas classic.
Red and Lulu make their nest in a particularly beautiful evergreen tree. It shades them in the hot months and keeps them cozy in the cold months, and once a year the people who live nearby string lights on their tree and sing a special song: O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree. But one day, something unthinkable happens, and Red and Lulu are separated. It will take a miracle for them to find each another again. Luckily, it’s just the season for miracles. . . . From Matt Tavares comes a heart-tugging story combining the cheer of Christmas, the magic of New York City, and the real meaning of the holiday season: how important it is to be surrounded by love.

An enchanting Christmas story about a magical yet unlikely friendship between a little girl and a lost reindeer, lovingly told and illustrated with red foil highlights and interactive die cuts.

When a jingling sound wakes her from her sleep, a little girl’s dreams come true when she meets a lost reindeer in the forest. They set off on a magical adventure and it becomes a Christmas never to forget. Nicola Killen’s evocative illustrations are sure to enchant in this beautiful book with die cut pages, foil, and flashes of festive red.

We had such a fun day yesterday at our first ever Winter Craft Day event. Kids of all ages came and played games, drank hot cocoa, and made lots of crafts. In fact, we had so much fun that this will probably be an annual event!
