Reading with Friends welcomes fall with “The Leaf Thief”

August 30, 2022 by

Reading with Friends will return 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 9 at Neighbor to Neighbor in downtown Concordia. September’s book will be “The Leaf Thief,” by Alice Hamming and illustrated by Nicola Slater. This month’s guest reader will be Sister Murray, LDS.

“The Leaf Thief” is described as a brilliantly funny story of the seasons. Squirrel is so cross. Yesterday there were loads of beautiful leaves on his tree, but today? Today some are missing and Squirrel is convinced that someone has stolen them … there’s a leaf thief on the loose!

Pre-registration is required to come to the free, live event at Neighbor to Neighbor. This event will be in-person only and not live streamed.

Sister Missy Ljungdahl, director of Neighbor to Neighbor, said the first 25 children to pre-register will be able to pick up a copy of the book (one per family).

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. To register, 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.
