The book takes us on a Christmas sleigh ride around the world to discover traditions from Mexico, Sweden, the Philippines, Poland, Italy, Kenya, and the United States. To celebrate a tradition from Mexico, the children made poinsettias.

Have you every wondered what it would be like to be an aerospace engineer? Professional engineers frequently encounter design challenges when developing, manufacturing and testing aerospace products. They must be creative and use their imaginations to best solve problems. During our final activity time, the kids designed, built and launched a rocket to test for height and distance. The pictures show the kids testing their rocket creations.
Due to the weather the Elgin Public Library will be closed today, Thursday, April 11, 2019. Hope to see you tomorrow. Have a great day!
