Build A Better World, our summer reading program, is off to a great start this week. Special reader Marlene Kohn read the story "Show Way" by Jacqueline Woodson. It's a story about quilts with secret meanings that are maps to freedom. Marlene has been quilting since the 1980's and talked to the children about her hobby. The children then made their own quilts with cut out pieces of flannel and colored card stock. The snack for the day was graham cracker squares, decorated to look like quilt pieces. Couldn't make it last Thursday, stop in and pick up a reading record and join the fun.
