Summer Reading Begins

Mallory Valerie Emily Mickels just saved up nine hundred ninety-nine nickels. This catchy sentence was a trick to help the story time children remember the names of the planets and remember them quick. Summer story time started on Monday, June 3 with 14 children attending. We read the book Chicken In Space by Adam Lehrhaupt and made rockets to send our own chickens out in to space. On Wednesday 22 children listened to the story There’s No Place Like Space –All About Our Solar System by Tish Rabe. To help the children learn more about the solar system they made head bands which included the planets as well as the sun. With the help of Mallory Valerie Emily Mickels you can learn the names of the planets as long as you save up nine hundred ninety nine nickels.
Activity time began on Thursday, June 6. Travis Rudloff from the Antelope County Extension office read Let’s Explore the Moon by Walt K. Moon. The kids also made “moon sand” and built space stations. Stop by the library and vote for your favorite space station. A trophy goes to the winner!
