June 2010 storytelling around the book:

“Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears” by Verna Aardema

Saturday, June 19th 2010

At 11 a.m. – English version (All in English)

At 12:30 p.m –English version with some Spanish to help understand

“In this astonishingly beautiful and imaginatively illustrated picture book, Mosquito tells Iguana a tall tale that sets off a chain reaction that ends in jungle disaster. Iguana is so upset at being told such nonsense that he plugs his ears. So, of course, when Python says good morning, Iguana doesn’t hear and ignores him altogether. Python suspects Iguana is plotting mischief against him, so he hides in a rabbit hole – which terrifies Rabbit. And so this amusing African legend goes, until finally the chain of mishaps reaches Mother Owl, who reacts by refusing to hoot and wake in the sun.”

From Barnes & Noble.
