Books about Books Meta-Reading Reading Themes

[BHE 279] Library Loot of Picturebooks about Libraries and Books

Myra here.

We are celebrating books about books for our current reading theme until end of October.

I reserved these lovely books from the public library as they were not available at the Jurong West Public Library. I am looking forward to featuring them in the coming days.

  1. The Prince’s Bedtime published by Barefoot Books is the story of a little prince who won’t go to sleep. Nothing works – magic, dancers, music, etc. In the end a woman arrives at the palace door who has a book in her basket and reading the prince a story works to put him to sleep. Cute story, great illustrations! Highly recommended.
