At our February S.T.E.M. Storytime, we read Henry Builds a Cabin by D. B. Johnson. It's based on the story of Thoreau, who built a tiny cabin in Walden woods. He was creative and thrifty and built his home just big enough for a all his needs. After the story, we built, too - using cubes, small plastic glasses, and craft sticks.
Before we left, one of our patrons read a book she had written and illustrated all by herself! It was super!
