CitySpace Storytime: "Stop That Pickle!" By Peter Armour

CitySpace Storytime is a virtual series featuring WBUR hosts and reporters reading some of their favorite children's books.

In a special edition of this week's storytime, WBUR weekend news anchor Sharon Brody reads "Stop That Pickle!" by Peter Armour. Esmeralda Silva, an early education teacher in Seville, Spain and Sharon's niece, also joins us to read the same book in Spanish! Enjoy both versions below.

About "Stop That Pickle!"
When Mrs. Elmira Deeds waddles into Mr. Adolph’s deli and asks for a pickle, chaos erupts! The pickle escapes from the jar, and a cast of zany characters, including a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and seventeen toasted almonds, joins in the chase to stop the pickle as it attempts to run away. Can anyone stop that pickle?
