Reading with Friends to feature “Bruce’s Big Storm” in October

October’s book for Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor will be “Bruce’s Big Storm” by best-selling author and illustrator Ryan T. Higgins.

Last winter, the kids were treated to the story of Bruce the grumpy bear as he played Santa for all his forest friends. Now they’ll hear the story of how all the forest animals turn to Bruce during a big storm — whether he likes it or not!

The book will be read by guest reader Tina Brewer.

Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 9 at Neighbor to Neighbor.

Sister Missy Ljungdahl, director of Neighbor to Neighbor, said additional precautions will be taken due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Face masks will be required for everyone over 2 years of age, temperature checks will be offered and social distancing will be observed. Hand sanitizer will be available.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are on the second Fridays of the month and all begin at 10 a.m. 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 so that their child will receive a book. 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. Neighbor to Neighbor is located at 103 E. 6th St. in downtown Concordia.
