Red, white and blue reigned in Marie’s Library Storytime

Red, white and blue reigned in Marie’s Library Storytime on Tuesday, June 30.  Thirty-four children and 16 adults dressed in the American flag colors to celebrate our country’s birthday at the McHugh Building.  The morning started with a fun lesson on zoo animals, which is one of the group of animals the children are learning about this summer at storytime.  They shared many toy zoo animals from home, listened to a story about Curious George at the Zoo, and learned some fun zoo songs that had them moving and sounding like a huge zoo had  entered the building. Then they were given a picture of some zoo animals to color, followed by a group picture and a snack of zoo animal crackers. After the “animal” session, the children were given patriotic visors and pinwheels to wave during our annual “4th of July Parade” down Birch Ave. The storytime children were joined by the Books with Boone children, Lisa and Boone for the parade. This was Boone’s first holiday parade. Everyone had a great time waving to the local merchants who were gracious enough to step out onto the sidewalk to cheer the parade as they walked by. Thanks to all the Birch Avenue merchants, the adults who accompanied the children, and the children of both Tuesday reading programs for helping to get the 4th of July holiday off to a great start.
