“There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” will be featured book at March’s Reading with Friends

February 25, 2020 by

March’s book for Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor will be “There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!” by Lucille Colandro and illustrated by Jared Lee.

It’s the Old Lady from the famous childhood song as you’ve never seen her before! Now she’s swallowing animals from the classic story … to create a home full of lovable pets!

With rhyming text and hilarious illustrations, this is the original song young readers know and love with a wacky twist.

The book will be read by special guest Janene Aggson.

Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, March 6. This month’s event is a week earlier than usual, as Neighbor to Neighbor will be closed for Spring Break the following week.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are usually on the second Fridays of the month and all begin at 10 a.m. at Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth St. 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. 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.
