THOMAS — Kids are “Digging into Reading” at the Snake River School/Community Library at the “end of summer reading party” on Tuesday.
Food was served. The children made “dirt” by crushing Oreo cookies.
Pudding was added to the dirt for a sweet treat. Watermelon was also
Kids also received free books and chose a flower to take home.
Story time lady, Miss Peggy Hansen, helped the children put handles on
their picnic baskets. The baskets were formed from two paper cups, inserted one into the other. The bottom of the two cups was cut out. A balloon was inserted between them so the children could sail their “fluff ball ants” out of their picnic basket. A big pile of dirt was brought into the park offeringing lot so kids could “dig for dinosaurs.” A tractor was on hand for kids to explore. A farmer’s market was also on hand.
“Lots of people helped with the summer reading program this year,” said
Susan Otterstrom, summer reading director. “I really appreciate all the work these people have done.”
The summer reading program at the Snake River Library had 409 kids registered. An adult reading activity is scheduled at 7 p.m. tonight. Frances Shelton will be teaching tips and tricks for Ancestry.Com. All are welcome.
