Reading Program continues on July 11
As the “Dig Into Reading” program continues at the Prairie Community Library in Cottonwood, guests, good books, activities and crafts keep eager readers coming back. This week’s theme centered around underground animals was a hit with the children. Upon arriving the students had to follow several trails of different animal tracks to discover which animal had left them. Games followed. A couple of child participants then shared some of their favorite books they have read this summer: Tony Goeckner shared “Flat Stanley” and Kristin Wemhoff shared “My Pony Book”. Both kids encouraged others to check them out!
Maxine Riggers then arrived and read “The Carrot Seed” and “The Bear’s Toothache” to the children. Her surprise carrot and the bear’s tooth helped the books come alive for the kids. The kids then made either a bear picture with “coffee glitter” or a night picture using lots of dark crayons. Ellea Uhlenkott then shared ice cream snacks with the kids. The session ended with the children checking out more books to read throughout the upcoming days!
A reminder there will be NO session, Thursday, July 4th. The Summer Reading Program will continue on Thursday, July 11th at the Library from 1:30-3:00. Hope to see you all there!
