‘Frederick’ to be featured book at Reading with Friends

Have 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.

Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10, and Jane Wahlmeier will be the guest reader.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are all on the second Fridays of the month 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

This is the second “Reading with Friends” program scheduled this fall. The monthly program has been a part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012. Upcoming dates will be Dec. 8 and Jan. 12. In the new year, the program will continue through May 2018.

This year’s Reading with Friends is made possible thanks to a generous donation from Betty Drake of Beloit.
