March 10 preschool storytime will be ‘Magnificent’

February 24, 2017 by

Concordia preschoolers are invited to a magnificent storytime at the next “Reading with Friends” at Neighbor to Neighbor.

The book to be read is “The Most Magnificent Thing” and the guest reader will be Margo Hosie of Concordia.

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

In the story by award-winning author and illustrator Ashley Spires, a girl recruits her best friend — a dog — to help make the most magnificent thing. But the project turns out not to be as easy as she thought, and she tries and fails, repeatedly. Finally, she gets so mad she quits. Then it takes her best friend to convince her to try again.

The “Reading with Friends” storytimes are 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 final session for the 2016-17 school year is 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.
