Do you have a preschooler and live in the Northeast? Think about stopping by the Lawncrest Library on Rising Sun Avenue. Besides offering a wide variety of children’s books and materials, Lawncrest provides some unique and entertaining children’s programming thanks to Children’s Librarian and Branch Head Deb Mikus.
Deb has worked for the Free Library of Philadelphia for over 20 years, the past four of which were spent at Lawncrest. When asked about her favorite book for preschoolers, she says it’s “very hard to pick just one or even a few.” With so many great books for preschoolers out there, who can blame her? She does like It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw because it can “generate a lot of conversation about clouds and their shapes among children.” She also likes The Pigeon Wants a Puppy by Mo Willems.
For her preschool storytimes, Deb comes up with lots of fun themes, often dressing the part. You might see her dressed as a train conductor, farmer, or even a pirate! As a result, her preschool storytimes are very engaging and full of adventure!
