Courtesy Guidelines

The focus of everyone in the room during Story Time is centered on the children and the program.
Thus, all communication devices need to be turned off.
Please feel free to take any children who are restless or disruptive out of Imagination Station until they are ready to rejoin us.I appreciate your cooperation and consideration for the other audience members and myself.
If you don’t plan to attend Story Time with your child, please remain in the building!
For your child’s sense of well-being, be present outside Imagination Station as Story Time ends, so your child may be picked up promptly.
Your respect for these guidelines enhances my ability to conduct an enjoyable Story Time for the children!

Thank you!

Mrs. Reasoner
Children's Librarian

The Library of Michigan is pleased to announce the 2019
"Ready to Read Michigan" book selection Touch the Brightest Star
written and illustrated by Christie Matheson

 
SUMMARY

This interactive bedtime story proves nighttime isn't scary at all. 
The gentle journey from sunset to sunrise shows even the youngest children the magic of the nighttime sky - and lets them make magic happen!

 

With lush, beautiful watercolors and cut-paper collage, Christie Matheson reveals the magic of the nighttime sky, using toddler-perfect interactive elements.
 

Wave good-bye to the sun, gently press the firefly, make a wish on a star,
rub the owls on their heads, and ... shhhh!
No two readings of this book with its gentle soothing rhythm will be the same.

 

 
MEET THE AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR: Christie Matheson
 

Christie Matheson is the author of the acclaimed picture books 
Tap the Magic TreeBird Watch, and Plant the Tiny Seed. Her three young children like to take her birding in the Presidio of San Francisco.

The Story of "READY TO READ MICHIGAN"

The Library of Michigan’s Ready to Read Michigan program encourages reading aloud regularly to children during the early stages of life (birth up to age 5), as it ensures the development of early literacy skills and instills a love of reading.  The program is designed for public librarians to model early literacy skill development directly to families and engage in outreach to early childhood centers, classrooms and daycares throughout their community.

Support

 This program is made possible by grant funds
from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (
IMLS) administered by the State of Michigan through the Library of Michigan.
Additional support provided by Bloomsbury Publishing, Consumers Energy
and the Library of Michigan Foundation.
