Read On Wisconsin April Ambassador

Heide Piehler shares Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore.
Heide Piehler, Youth Services Librarian at the Shorewood Public Library served as the Read On Wisconsin Ambassador for the month of April.  Ambassadors help promote the monthly Read On Wisconsin titles for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore and illustrated by Nancy Carpenter was prominently featured in the Shorewood preschool story time program.

Read On Wisconsin is literacy program that promotes high-quality books for children and teens throughout our state. Each month features one or more Read On Wisconsin titles for children and teens in five different age-level groups. The Cooperative Children's Book Center, hosts of the program, hope you’ll choose these books as read-alouds or book discussion selections, feature them in displays, or highlight them in other ways as you connect Wisconsin children and teens with books in your library or classroom.
Inspired by the R.O.W. featured book Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore and the song Six Little Ducks, Shorewood Library’s story time preschoolers create their own little ducks with “feathers in the back.”
