Welcome to the Success By 6 Book of the Month Club! Each month, we feature a book for children age birth through six, selected by local librarians and bookstore owners. Parents, we hope you'll check out the Book of the Month for your child at your local library! Read on to learn about this month's selection:
Patrick is preparing for his first sleepover at his grandma's house, and once he arrives, he discovers he has forgotten a few items in the wacky book "What Cried Granny: an almost bedtime story," our Success By 6 October Book of the Month, written by Kate Lum.
When Patrick's grandmother urges him to go to bed, Patrick exclaims he doesn't have a bed to sleep in at her house. That sets off a chain of events where grandma goes to heroic efforts to build a bed, make a blanket, and design a teddy bear so Patrick can sleep. While Patrick continues to watch TV, morning comes too soon for his hard working grandma!
Lum is also the author of "Princesses are not Quitters." You can check out her books at the Spokane Public Library and the Spokane County Library District.
