V is for Village

We started Storytime off with some singing and tracing and talking about "v" words. We read the books "The Big Red Tractor and the Little Village" by Francis Chan, "It Takes a Village" by Jane Cowen-Fletcher, and "The Water Princess" by Susan Verde. Great books! We finished up by cutting out our own little homes and creating our own sweet, colorful village.

Upcoming---After School Program - Basic First Aid

Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?

Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?
Endicott Branch Library

Friday, Mar. 24, 1:00 pm

Throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight- to ten-foot-tall hominid—for hundreds of years. Yet aside from a collection of large footprint casts and a sizable assemblage of eyewitness accounts, some attributable to the earliest humans in the Northwest, no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being’s existence.

Author David George Gordon evaluates the data gathered about the legendary Northwest icon, discusses the rules of critical thinking and the workings of the scientific method, and explains how one can become an effective “citizen scientist” by gathering credible evidence that can be used to substantiate the Sasquatch’s status as either Man-Ape or Myth. Attendees are encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences with this mysterious creature.

Ladies Night at the Library March/April

U is for Universe

I am so glad to be where I am in this universe and to be able to hang out with these cool kiddos on Fridays at Storytime. We did some singing, tracing, and talking about words that start with the letter U. ("Underpants" was their favorite U word...ha!) We read the books "There's No Place Like Space!" by Tish Rabe, "The Darkest Dark" by astronaut, Chris Hadfield, and "Light Up the Night" by Jean Reidy. We finished up by talking about the immeasurable universe and where we are in the universe. We also colored pictures of our solar system.

T is for Tickle

Tickle was the word of the day today. We traced the letter T and read some great books. We read "The Very Ticklish Tiger" by Jack Tickle, a selections of poems from "For Laughing Out Loud" by Jack Prelutsky, "Tickle Monster" by Josie Bissett, and "Tickle, Tickle" by Helen Oxenbury. Then we sat down and did some group drawings of our very own Tickle Monsters. We started with a shape then each person would take a turn adding a new part to the monster. It was really fun and quite silly! We also played a couple monster memory games. We finished up with some feather tickles!
