Episode: We’re Going On a Bear Hunt

Have you ever gone on a bear hunt?

Oma’s going on one today in her

Reading Room!

Will you come too?

With tremendous pace, humor, and verve,

Michael Rosen

has retold a favorite traditional story.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!

The pictures by

Helen Oxenbury

are full of masterly characterization, delightful comedy, and high drama, set in lovely sweeping landscapes.

Together we will join a father and his four young children as they cross a field of tall, wavy grass, wade through a deep, cold river, struggle through swampy mud, find their way through a big, dark forest, fight through a whirling snowstorm, and enter finally enter a narrow, gloomy cave.

What will they find there?

I do hope you will meet me in Oma’s Reading Room to find out!

Where you may also discover a fun song to sing-a-long with!

Until next time…

remember Oma is sending you her 

hugs and her blessings

I do hope you’ll catch them and hold them 

real tight!

Episode: The Friendship Book

It’s raining! It’s pouring!

It’s Spring!

Happy Spring to you, little ones!

If you live in a northern climate, you know there are few joys as sharp and sweet as spring, unfolding slowly into lush abundance at the end of a long harsh winter.

The sunshine, the colors, the smells – everything conspires to make you glad.

And I am so VERY glad we’re friends!

Big or small – Oma loves you all!

And I just know you are going to LOVE today’s story!

The Friendship Book

Sometimes being friends begins all at once
And sometimes it takes a while to get acquainted
But then, as some small knowing grows,
You start feeling that feeling
That comes with having a friend—

 
are just of a few of the things you will discover when Oma reads this story to you!

Exploring the many shapes friendships take and how being a friend can be a gift in itself, this thoughtful and authentic primer on friendship invites readers to celebrate the wonders of companionship.

Be sure to join Oma in her Reading Room as we share together – a heart-warming story book that encourages everyone to celebrate and embrace unique friendships of all kinds!

This Episode is in memory of Oma’s dear friend, Lisa.

Until next time…

remember Oma is sending you her 

hugs and her blessings

I do hope you’ll catch them and hold them 

real tight! 

Bye-bye!!
