Program Type: Storytime

Do you love food? Well who doesn’t?! You are invited to go on a culinary adventure to celebrate and explore things that are eaten. Books highlighted this week are just a few of the wonderful items that help you experience new people and animals, places and foods!

READ ALOUD: The Bagel King by Andrew Larsen. Also, check out Hoopla and Tumble Book Library on the library’s website for other books to enjoy. 

VIDEO: The Bagel Song by Storybooksong.

ACTIVITY: Make some funny, yummy bagels!

The veggie-face. Start with splitting the bagel and spreading each half with cream cheese. Use thin cucumber slices for eyes, and a wedge of tomato for a smile. Shredded carrot makes perfect hair (it’s a carrot-top! Get it?) and you can even shake on a little seasoning for a more natural complexion.

The ladybug. Toast a split bagel, then spread with a light covering of plain guacamole. Cut a tomato slice in half, and place it over the center. Top the tomato with halved black olives for spots, using another olive for the ladybug’s head.

This little piggy. Start by spreading one bagel half with strawberry flavored cream cheese. Cut pieces from the other half to form a snout, front feet and a tail. Create eyes and nostrils from slivers of strawberries. You can also make other animals such as a doggy (using Nutella and banana) or a penguin (with cream cheese and chopped black olives).
