March 18 theme: Naked Mole Rats and Other Uglies!

The first title for this theme was "So Ugly They're Cute,"
but I'm not so sure.

What's this, you ask? Why, it's a Naked Mole Rat, of course! And don't worry, they're not immodest streakers of the animal world: they just don't have too much fur.
Ms. Ruth here at the Morgantown Branch introduced me to a lovely, funny book about a naked mole rat, and I just had to share.
Also, I am cooking up an extra-special craft this week involving our very own NMR sculpture pets to take home.

Here are some books we'll look at and some books you should check out:

Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems

The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen ; retold by Stephen Mitchell

I Want a Hug by John Rowe

Beauty and the Beast retold by Max Eilenberg

Shrek! by William Steig

This is a story time I think kids will have fun with. Join us!
