D is for Dinosaur!

D is for Dinosaur!  Today at story time we worked on the letter D.  The kiddos worked on writing their capital and lower case D's then we read the books "Dinosaur vs. the Library" by Bob Shea, "Dinosaur Dig!" by Penny Dale, and "Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur" by Judy Sierra.  We did a bit of coloring, cutting, and gluing of shapes to make some triceratop dinosaurs.  Each child also took a turn reading to Roxanna and we also saw a sweet bunny while we were outside taking pictures.  Yay for story time adventures!

My favorite picture of the day!


It's kind of hard to see.....but there is a little bunny at the base of the tree.

After School Program 9-18-13

I also missed our After School program this last week....but, once again, Amy Williams, Jamie Misner, and Nancy M Anderson came to the rescue. Judi Gray was going to help with this activity, but also had to miss it...but she gave Amy all of the stuff needed to make these super cute, recycled, jack-o-lantern magnets. The kiddos painted on old CDs and simply added magnets for this fun project.
Thanks to all who filled in and helped out last week while I was gone working on our home in Utah or my "slav-cation" as my husband called it. 

C is for Cat

Sadly I missed Story Time this week. But, between my sub, Amy Williams, and my super mom helper, Jamie Misner, Story Time was taken care of. They read the books "Have You Seen My Cat?" by Eric Carle, "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" by Laura Numeroff, "Cat Dreams" by Ursula K. Le Guin, and "Tumford the Terrible" by Nancy Tillman. Then they made the cute little kitty shown in the pic. I sure missed my story time kiddos, but appreciate that they were left in capable hands.


Come to the Endicott Library for Book Club
October 17 @ 7:00 PM

We will be discussing the book 

"The Hearts of Horses"

 by Molly Gloss

This breakout novel from the author of The Jump-Off Creek tells the heartwarming story of a determined young woman with a gift for gentling” wild horses.

In the winter of 1917, a big-boned young woman shows up at George Bliss’s doorstep. She's looking for a job breaking horses, and he hires her on. Many of his regular hands are off fighting the war, and he glimpses, beneath her showy rodeo garb, a shy but strong-willed girl with a serious knowledge of horses.

So begins the irresistible tale of nineteen-year-old Martha Lessen, a female horse whisperer trying to make a go of it in a man’s world. It was thought that the only way to break a horse was to buck the wild out of it, and broken ribs and tough falls just went with the job. But over several long, hard winter months, many of the townsfolk in this remote county of eastern Oregon witness Martha's way of talking in low, sweet tones to horses believed beyond repair—and getting miraculous, almost immediate results—and she thereby earns a place of respect in the community.

Along the way, Martha helps a family save their horses when their wagon slides into a ravine. She gentles a horse for a dying man—a last gift to his young son. She clashes with a hired hand who is abusing horses in unspeakable ways. Soon, despite her best efforts to remain aloof and detached, she comes to feel enveloped by a sense of community and family that she’s never had before.

With the elegant sweetness of Plainsong and a pitch-perfect sense of western life reminiscent of Annie Dillard, The Hearts of Horses is a remarkable story about how people and animals make connections and touch each other's lives in the most unexpected and profound ways.

B is for Bee - Story Time 9-13-13

Today we worked on our B's and read the books "Buzz Said the Bee" by Wendy Cheyette Lewiston, "The Bee Tree" by Patricia Polacco, and "Roonie B. Moonie Lost and Alone" by Janan Cain. Then we made some super cute little bumble bees that the kiddos truly enjoyed. And we had a visit with our K-9 friend, Roxanna, who the children adore. Great day to be a kid at story time!

A is for Apple - Story Time

Welcome back to Endicott Library's Story Time! We started the year with the letter A. We worked on writing our big 'A' and little 'a' then we read the books "Big Red Apple" by Tony Johnston, "Ten Apples Up On Top" by Theo LeSieg, and "Apple Countdown" by Joan Holub. Then we colored our own apples, added a white apple shape to make it look like our apples were sliced in half, then added seeds (1 per year of the kids' age). We had a little trouble gathering everyone for a photo and basically had two different story time groups today...but whatever works! It was a fun 1st day back!!!
