Have you heard?

1000 Books Before Kindergarten.

If you have a little one, please think about getting them signed up. They can win prizes as they reach milestones. During this growth time of their lives, reading is super important to their development. And, it’s a great bonding time too!

Each time they reach a milestone, they get a prize and if you are okay with it, I would like to get a photo of them to put on my brag wall by my desk!
At the end, when they reach 1000 books, they will receive an awesomely fantastical, bootimus t-shirt for their hard work!! And maybe even a goody bag.
Did I mention that it is a COOL T-shirt? Because it is!

Come see me and get your little one signed up and start charting those books you read to them. Also, tune in on each Wednesday at 10:30 when I do Storytime right here on our Facebook page or you can log in via ZOOM.
You can count those books that I read too!!
It’s a win – win!!

Hi! My name is Lesa.       

I do story time on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. I am doing virtual story time right now due to the current situation. I would love to have you log in and enjoy story time with me! Sometimes, I sing. I am not good at it but that is okay. I just want to have fun. It’s ok if we aren’t great at something. It’s all about having fun so come and sit, sing and be silly with me!

Most of the time, I will do a craft at the end of story time. If you want me to put together a kit for your little with the craft I made, just comment if you are in Facebook or you can tell me in Zoom that you want a kit. You can then come in later in the day and pick up your kit that you can work on at home.

If you need help or can’t remember how to do the craft, just log in to the Facebook page and watch the video again. I will leave it up for a week. When you log in either on Facebook, type in the comments how many are present watching and listening. And also their ages. I don’t need names. On Zoom, please say hello!!
I use these numbers for our statistics for attendance. So, you are helping me out!! You are so wonderful to help me!

You can see me and listen to story time on our Facebook page at:
