This past week, I read Frankie's Perfect Home to three groups of children. Two of them were at the Wichita Falls Public Library for their story time. The other reading was at Hastings Books, Music, and Videos. Now, I planned to take pictures, lots of pictures. Yes, I did. I took my camera. Ready. Well, I got a few, but most of the time I simply forgot. Anyhow, here's what I have, not showing the little ones too much, of course, for their protection.
The librarian has a really neat program. Besides reading to the kids she made a cowboy. The theme of the day was Texas, to go along with my armadillo story.
Even the duck liked to hear about Frankie.
A couple of the girls decided to look at the felt armadillos on the bulletin board. The librarian had a cute program where she used armadillos to work with the kids on their colors and numbers.
At Hastings, one bright little boy looked at the book and said he never saw a blue armadillo. I laughed and said "Neither have I." So we talked about what color they really are.
The children loved the animal finger puppets I gave each of them. Unfortunately I couldn't find armadillos for them, but they liked the mixture of lions, tigers bears, etc.
I had a wonderful time. Hope the wee ones did too.
Have a nice week.
Happy reading and writing.
