Sen. Elaine Bowers to be guest reader at Reading with Friends

October 21, 2021 by

Kansas Sen. Elaine Bowers will be the guest reader for the November Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor. The event will be both in person and as a Facebook Live event at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 12.

November’s book will be “The Grumpy Monkey.” The hilarious #1 New York Times bestselling picture book about a chimpanzee in a very bad mood is perfect for young children learning how to deal with confusing feelings, especially during the transition of going back to school or preschool.

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, Nov. 12. 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
