Thanksgiving and Friends

It was all about Thanksgiving and friends at the Yoakum County Library’s StoryTime on Thursday, November 8, 2018.  To begin with, the group went over the calendar, sang the days of the week song, and said pledges.  Those in attendance were Nellie, Isabella, Rylee, Benny, Lena, Eli, Gershom, Tirzah, Reid, and Ben.  Next, the children created colorful thumbprint turkeys for their craft.  The non-fiction book “Thanksgiving” by Meredith Dash provided facts about the first Thanksgiving. “Bear Says Thanks” by Karma Wilson, about friends gathering together and sharing foods to have a great feast, was the next book read.   The last book was the part sing-a-long, part counting book, “One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims” by B.G. Hennessy.  The video clip” Max’s Thanksgiving” was viewed, after which the children did the “Wave Goodbye” song and received their goody bags. Door prizes were won by Reid and Nellie.

All ages are welcome at the Family StoryTime, which meets weekly at the Yoakum County Library in Plains every Thursday at 10:30 AM.  The group will not meet on November 22.  Find Yoakum County Library on Facebook to keep up with all events.
