web-thumb-Reading-LogoHave a preschooler who would like to make friends with a field mouse?

Then bring your child to the next “Reading with Friends” to meet Frederick, the title character in a delightful book by Leo Lionni.

web-fredrick-coverStory time begins at 10 a.m. Friday, March 27, and Jim Wahlmeier will be the guest reader.

This is the second of four “Reading with Friends” programs scheduled this spring.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are all on Fridays and all begin at 10 a.m. at Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth St. Each session will include playtime and a snack for the children, plus each child will receive a free copy of that day’s book to take home.

There is a limit of 30 children per session so parents must register in advance; call Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or email

Here’s the rest of the schedule:

  • April 24 — Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak
  • May 15 — “Sylvester and the Magic Pebble” by William Steig

The program was made possible by a gift from the Cloud County Attorney’s Diversion Fund.

The Sisters of St. Joseph who operate Neighbor to Neighbor plan to offer another Reading with Friends series next fall.
