Register now for Reading with Friends on March 18

March 7, 2022 by

Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor will be both in person and as a Facebook Live event at 10 a.m. Friday, March 18. March’s book will be “How to Feed Your Parents,” by Ryan Miller and illustrated by Hatem Aly. The event was originally set for March 11, but was moved due to a significant snow event. 

Do you have a picky eater in the house? Who’s the picky eater? Well in this story it is not Matilda — a little girl with adventurous tastes turns the tables on her food-fussy parents and teaches them that dinner can be more than chicken nuggets.

The guest reader will be Camey Thurmer.

Pre-registration is required to come to the live event at Neighbor to Neighbor, and masks are required in the building. Pre-registration also is required to pick up a free book in advance. However, the video will be free for anyone to watch on Neighbor to Neighbor’s Facebook page. www.facebook.com/N2NConcordia

Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, March. 18. The video will stay on the Facebook page after the reading for anyone to enjoy later, in case they can’t make it at 10 a.m.

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 whether the child is attending in person or online (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 neighbortoneighbor@csjkansas.org.

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.
