I Spy Fly Guy!

Remember when we had the Frog Prince and Pete the Cat hidden in the children's room in the past?  This winter break we have Fly Guy hiding out in the children's room!  From December 17-31, when you come to the library, look around the children's room and see if you can spy where Fly Guy is hiding.  Then check to see what he's reading.  Come to the children's desk and let us know where you found him and what book he is reading that day.  Then claim a little prize!  He'll be in a new hiding spot each day and reading a different book too, so be sure to hunt for him each time you visit until the end of the year!
