Welcome to TLE’s Storytime with the featured story: Bubbles…UP!

Plunge! A day at the pool is filled with fun. Dunking and splashing. Bumping and laughing. Handstands, somersaults, deep dives, and magical moments full of light. And through it all, the bubbles float to the surface—nose bubbles, mouth bubbles, ear bubbles, rear bubbles—all rising UP!

An everyday visit to the community pool is transformed into an unforgettable celebration of the world underwater, where always and forever bubbles…rise…UP!

Welcome to TLE’s Storytime with the featured story: IN MY HEART

Happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness . . . our hearts can feel so many feelings! Some make us feel as light as a balloon, others as heavy as an elephant. In My Heart explores a full range of emotions, describing how they feel physically, inside, with language that is lyrical but also direct to empower readers to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions.
