Arnie the Doughnut read by Chris O'Dowd

Jill can't make it to story time today, so enjoy this video of Chris O'Dowd reading Arnie the Doughnut!

Arnie the Doughnut read by Chris O'Dowd and written and illustrated by Laurie Keller. At first glance, Arnie looks like an average doughnut - round, cakey, iced and sprinkled, with a hole in the middle. He was made by one of the best bakeries in town, and admittedly his sprinkles are candy-colored.....

Another week of video content from Page Turner Animal Adventures! Part of our online summer reading program with READsquared!
http://kkny14.readsquared.com/ComingSoon.aspx
Fish Tales week
This week it’s all about H2 OH! We’ll dive deep and meet some fantastic finned friends with our wet and wild show, crafts, and special guests.

Check out our Virtual Summer Library Program. This is Fish Tales Week! We’ll jump into the Once Upon a Time Machine for a Wonderfully Watery show called The Ocean’s Got Talent with Storyologists, Page Turner and Kenny. We’ll also make a fun ocean scene craft and coffee filter sea creatures. Our author is the amazing Kate Messner with her books Over and Under the Pond and Over and Under the Rainforest. And our guest performer is Storyteller Extraordinaire, Yasu Ishida who will share some amazing tales and teach us how to make an origami whale. We hope you enjoy this week’s videos from Page Turner Adventures and the Kenmore Library. And remember, when You Read Every Day is an Adventure!

SHOW DAY: The Ocean’s Got Talent
We’ve searched the seven seas for some of the ocean’s most talented creatures. Octopus will perform an amazing escape, Mantis Shrimp will prove he’s not just a pretty face, and Angler Fish has an act you’ll definitely want to catch. With all this talent, will Sea Slug be able to shine?

CRAFT DAY: Ocean Scene Prints
With some recycled Styrofoam and water-based markers, you can “print” your own beautiful ocean scene.

AUTHOR DAY: Kate Messner
The amazing Kate Messner talks to Page Turner about the creatures who live Over and Under the Pond AND Over and Under the Rainforest!

MASHUP DAY: Coffee Filter Fish
With some water-based markers and a little H2O, coffee filters are transformed into colorful sea creatures.

GUEST PERFORMER: Yasu Ishida
Yasu is an award-winning performer who combines traditional Japanese theatre, music, origami, magic, and storytelling into one-of-a-kind performances. Yasu will amaze you with stories, then show you how to make your very own origami whale!
