The Library of Michigan 2013 Michigan Reads! book is Woolbur by Leslie Helakoski and illustrated by Lee Harper.
We welcome children, parents, caregivers, librarians and teachers to participate in our 9th program year. In our 2013 book Woolbur, the pages are full of movement and activity as a lamb named Woolbur finds creative ways to go about his day. When Woolbur is asked to do things, he finds original ways to accomplish everyday tasks and shares his ideas with others. The story, the language, the joyfulness of Woolbur's actions, and the wonderful illustrations all come together to make Woolbur a go to book for both children and older readers as they learn how to go about their own day.
We are wrapping up the Michigan Reads program for 2013. Participating schools and libraries, please go to the Survey button below to complete a quick program survey. We appreciate your information and feedback. While the official program is finishing, the materials for the program will remain on the site for use any time of the year. Thank you for partnering with the Library of Michigan on this program.
The Lions Club of Michigan partnered with the Library of Michigan for the 2013 program. Lions can be guest readers, help with activities and may also be able to do vision checks for children. For more information, see the Lions Club Partnership Information Sheet.
We have sent kits to public and tribal libraries, public and private schools with K-2 classrooms, Head Starts, and Great Start Readiness programs in August. The programming guide is available with activities for infants, toddlers, preschooler and school age children. The guide has teacher, librarian and parent and caregiver materials, and incorporates your suggestions from last year's survey.
For those new to the program, the programming guide is available online for teachers, caregivers, parents and librarians with many activities! 2013 Programming Guide for Woolbur
