Reading with Friends announces December offering

Do you know a very special preschooler? Then treat them to a free reading of “The Night You Were Born,” a book that celebrates the uniqueness of every child, at the next Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor.

The birth of a baby —”the one and only ever you” — causes jubilation throughout creation in this quietly celebratory picture book by writer and illustrator Nancy Tillman.

Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 8. Margo Hosie 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 neighbortoneighbor@csjkansas.org.

This is the third “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 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.
