StoryTime:  After missing a couple weeks because of the holidays, it was good to have the kids for story time this week.  We went back to Old MacDonald’s Farm and this time added chickens!  We read Chicken Story Time, When the Rooster Crowed, Chickens to the Rescue and Click, Clack, Peep!  The children colored snowmen to add to the décor of the library and then made eggs with a chick inside.  When the first story time of the year came to an end, they left with their craft projects and a package of Razzles. - Doris Sorg
