The storytime begins at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at the downtown center, 103 E. Sixth St.

The guest reader for “Stuck” will be Sister Christina Brodie.

In the story, Floyd is determined to get his kite out of the tree. But how? First he tries knocking it down with his shoe. But strangely enough, that gets stuck, too. So he throws his other shoe, and, yes, it gets stuck. His only logical course of action is to find other things to throw, of course.

“Stuck,” published in 2011, is described as Oliver Jeffers’ most absurdly funny book since “The Incredible Book-Eating Boy.”

The “Reading with Friends” storytimes for children ages 3, 4 and 5. Each session includes playtime and a snack, plus children receive a free copy of that day’s book to take home. Parents, grandparents and other caregivers are invited to enjoy coffee and snacks downstairs at the day center for women while the story is being read upstairs.

There is a limit of 30 children per session so parents need to register for each session in advance by calling Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or emailing neighbortoneighbor@csjkansas.org.

The monthly program has been part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012. The remaining sessions for the 2016-17 school year are Jan. 13 (2017), Feb. 10, March 10 and April 7.

“Reading with Friends” is funded in part by a grant from the Dane G. Hansen Fund, through the Community Foundation for Cloud County.
