momstown Victoria Scholastic Tales for Tots: "Wishes" by Jean Little

Our Scholastic book selection this month is "Wishes," by Jean Little, a beautifully illustrated poem which begins with the old English proverb, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride." The saying usually means that wishing is useless, but in this book, wishing is a doorway to imaginative possibilities. The children loved this book and were able to follow the pattern of verse, "If wishes were ____, then _____ would ______," using their own own imagination and whimsy to fill in the blanks. Drop by our momstown Victoria Tales for Tots program at Chapters Victoria on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, 10-11 a.m., for a free craft, story time, and book prize draw! You might win a copy of next month's book selection, "Let it Fall," by Maryann Cocca-Leffler.

We are happy to announce a second Tales for Tots program in Colwood! Join us this Friday, September 28th, 11:30 am-12:30 pm at the Juan de Fuca Library for a special storytime, craft and free draw for our wonderful Scholastic book. Please register at
