FIRST READ-ALOUD OF THE FALL
It is getting dark earlier now and the morning starts with a definite chill in the air. I see the big yellow buses rolling along the road taking the children to school. Summer is over.
So it is time for me to start my fall visits to the libraries in our area. My first visit was at the Star City Library . When I saw the entrance into the children section. I was thrilled. It was so inviting. On the wall above the entrance was a large colorful neon sign. It vividly read, Kids Section.
And it certainly was a kids section; colorful rugs in the reading area, attractive books displayed, a play area and much more. This was a library that was designed to stretch a young child's early learning and interest in the world about them.
The welcoming atmosphere of the library contributed to the joy of reading to the children. They were so attentive and interested in the stories. It was uplifting to see the expressions on their faces as I read and to hear their comments about the stories. It was a very enjoyable first READ-ALOUD of the season.
Just a little side note: When I was getting ready for the children to arrive, I stood up in surprise when two old dear friends, Marty and Shirley Wallace, from the Blackfoot School District walked in. They had seen my name listed in the library events flyer and dropped in to see me. What a treat to see them. I will write a little more about them in the next blog.
My next reading will be on October 3, 2018 at the Caldwell Library. The Pre-school reading program starts at 10:30 A.M. and I will read again at 4:30 P.M. for the After School Program. I am excited about that visit. Watch my Facebook for all upcoming Library Readings.
