WILBUR and George….hop…hop…again.

I’m joining The Briar Patch Bookstore in Bangor, Maine this morning for a virtual story time.

It’s Easter weekend.

I’m reading my new book, Girls and Boys Come Out to Play, which features Mother Goose.

Wilbur said…Don’t forget George!

Just in case you need a rabbit for your basket..

Wilbur is our 100lb Bernese Mountain Dog.

He needed company when I’m busy at my drawing table.

Meet George the rabbit.

Cut him out.

Glue his front and back together.

Bend him at his feet and tell him to stand.

George’s vision is a little fuzzy. You can make him some glasses out of wire…

…and put them right over his nose.

Or if you would like…you can Color George.

Then, cut him out and glue him together.

Bend him at his feet and tell him to stand.

You can add glasses by drawing them…

any color…any shape!

Speaking of coloring…

…Here’s a bunny coloring page.

It’s made from the endpapers that I drew for TUCK-IN TIME…written by Carole Gerber.

…and paper bunny dolls!

Print and color!

There are more activities for many of my books.

Just visit the FUN STUFF section on my website:

Have fun!…tcp

Wilbur here…Do you like my crown?

I had fun at my first Virtual Story Time with TCP.

Thanks to Michele and Kristen at Phoenix Books in Essex, VT for hosting.

Thanks to all who joined us virtually in her studio.

She read.

She drew pictures.

She shared pictures.

Kids drew pictures and shared them from home.

Me…I sat on the floor of her studio and watched…

…I did not bark.

I did not beg for cookies.

I did not get into her trash.*

…Zoom-Zoom.

*Disclaimer: I did find part of a bagel in someone else’s trash on the way to her studio. It was delicious!

She said I was a good boy.

So, I’m invited to her next Virtual Story Time!!!

And you’re invited too!

READING TO WILBUR…WOOF!

What is a pup to do when the library is closed? Wilbur is looking for a reading buddy.

If you would like to be Wilbur’s reading buddy you can print him and cut him out.

…OR print Wilbur without color get out your crayons, colored pencils, markers…whatever you have.

Color him any color or lots of colors. Give him polka dots.

Cut him out after you have colored him.

Make him a little book. Fill it with a little story.

Tell him to sit. (If he doesn’t listen, fold him and make him sit on his bottom.)

Then read Wilbur your little book.

If he asks for more, you can make him another little book.

You can read him your favorite book. A book off your shelf or from under your bed.

Read to him anywhere.

On the floor.

In a chair.

Under your bed.

In your closet.

Where is your favorite place to read?

Wilbur would love to meet your Wilbur.

If you would like to share…Take a picture of your Wilbur in your favorite place to read and have your mom or dad send it to me and I’ll be sure he sees it.
