Full house at Neighbor to Neighbor’s Reading with Friends

It was a packed house Friday, Feb. 7, for Neighbor to Neighbor’s monthly Reading with Friends.

This month’s reader was Alisha Sipe, a mother and friend of Neighbor to Neighbor. With one of her children in her lap and another in the audience, she read, “That’s NOT a Hippopotamus!” by picture-book writer Juliette

The event is limited to 30 kids, but there may have been a few extra on Friday morning. Each family gets a copy of the book to take home for free.

Sister Missy Ljungdahl, director of Neighbor to Neighbor, made sure to let the mom’s know that if they got short on books this week they would order more.

After introducing Sipe, Sister Missy let the moms in the audience know that Sipe was involved with Concordia Area Moms, a local support group, and that there would be an informal get together while the kids enjoyed playtime in the toy room. Concordia Area Moms has an active Facebook page with the slogan, “We’re not meant to go through motherhood alone.”

The next Reading with Friends will be at 10 a.m. on March 6 at Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth Street. This is a week earlier than normal. Each session includes 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
The monthly program has been a part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012.
