This Saturday Hanni will be honored at a Champaign Public Library program called “Get Inspired! Meet a Hero at Your Library.” The Champaign library will be recommending favorite books about heroes for the next couple months, and “Hanni and Beth: Safe & sound” is one of their three picks for march:
1. Officer Buckle & Gloria
Recommended for preschoolers
by Peggy Rathman
The funny on-stage performances of a police dog, teamed with her new partner, teach kids how to be safe at home, in school, and around town.
2. Hanni and Beth: Safe & Sound,
Recommended for grades K to 2
by Beth Finke
How will Beth, who is blind, travel safely to work, to the park, or to a concert? Her good friend and guide dog, Hanni, helps her every day!
3. Charlotte’s Web
Recommended for grades 3 to 5
by E.B. White
A clever spider named Charlotte hatches a plan to save her dearest friend, Wilbur the pig
Hanni has been recognized for her heroism before, but being listed right up there with Charlotte the spider? Now, that’s an honor.
The Champaign Public Library’s calendar is full of hero-themed events for the next couple of months – Hanni is looking forward to her time in the spotlight this Saturday at 2 pm.
