Come explore the treasures of our Cherokee Public Library - books.
One treasure discovered last week during the Tuesday pre-school story time was Where's My Teddy by Jez Alborough.
It was a treat to watch the children's faces light up as they listened and reacted to the story about a little boy named Eddie who had lost his teddy named Freddie. The rhyming continues as Eddie enters the forest and finds his teddy, Freddie.
But something was wrong. This teddy was enormous and too big to cuddle. Then along comes a real live bear with a similar problem. What happened next? Come to the Cherokee Public Library to check out Where's My Teddy by Jez Alborough to find out if Eddie found HIS teddy and what happened between Eddie and the real live bear.
This book was published in 1992 and the illustrations helped build anticipation as the story was read. A treasure indeed, no matter how old, when children react with delight and wonder.
There are many more treasures to find at the library. Come check them out.
