StoryTime at Yoakum County Library Plains was full of bountiful colors on Wednesday, March 8, 2017.

With the colorful theme, the small group got a big dose of literacy fun. Those in attendance were Brit, Ben, Tirzah, and Evie.

Library Director Pat McNabb was also attending to showcase a couple of science experiments to highlight the theme of color. She also discussed the monthly state symbol: the Monarch Butterfly, state insect since 1995.

The group enjoyed two books, “Bear Sees Color” by Karma Wilson and “Birthday Mice” by Bethany Roberts, as well as a beautifully-crafted felt-rendition of the book “The Deep Blue Sea” by Audrey Wood. Each child also participated in a hands-on activity with the science experiment “Color-Changing Milk” while listening to Mrs. McNabb explain catalysts. PBS’s Cat in the Hat provided the video for the time, “Chasing Rainbows.” Each child left with a green goodie bag, in anticipation for next week’s green holiday—St. Patrick’s Day!

There will NOT be a StoryTime next week (March 15) due to Spring Break. However, StoryTime in Plains will resume on Wednesday, March 22 at 10 am.

Families and caregivers with children of all ages are welcome to attend the weekly literacy time.
