Duck? Rabbit? Kids will decide at Neighbor to Neighbor

web-duckrabbit-bookIs it a duck or a rabbit? Preschoolers at “Reading with Friends” on Friday, May 13, will get a chance to decide for themselves.

Guest reader Megan Nulf will bring the much-loved picture book to life at Neighbor to Neighbor as the preschool story time concludes for this school year.

Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s clever take on the age-old optical illusion features illustrations by Tom Lichtenheld. Since it was first published in 2009, it has delighted kids of all ages and has given children a subtle lesson in when to let go of an argument.

The “Reading with Friends” series is for children ages 3, 4 and 5 and begins at 10 a.m. at Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth St. Each session includes playtime and a snack, plus children receive a free copy of “Duck! Rabbit!” 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 so parents must register in advance by calling Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or emailing

This year’s “Reading with Friends,” which began last September, is funded by a grant from the Dane G. Hansen Fund, through the Community Foundation for Cloud County, and a gift from the Cloud County Attorney’s Diversion Fund, with continuing support from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, who operate Neighbor to Neighbor.
