Marie’s Storytime was vibrant with rainbows


These children enjoyed storytime, along with six adults: Kate Peterson, Hazel Jacobson, Isabelle Melgaard, Kenna Hennen, Elijan Dorse, Tyler Reinke, Clark Hawkinson, Charlie Peterson, Oliver Hawkinson, Lauren Peterson, and Gunnar Melgaard. (Photo submitted by Marie Mavencamp)

The boys and girls in Marie’s Storytime were sharing all kinds of pretty rainbows with pictures, rugs, jewelry, umbrellas, toys, and had fun finding the different rainbow colors on their clothes. Marie read some fun stories about rainbows. One book even made its own ribbon rainbow with each turn of the pages. Then the children learned some finger plays and poems about rainbows. Each child made their own paper rainbow, using a paper plate and long rainbow-colored strips of paper. They are pretty enough to hang up. After we took a picture holding the rainbows, the children received a bag of fruit snacks and were told to open them at home next to their rainbow and see if they could find and match all the colors of the rainbow with their snack. Each child also received a “magic” rainbow crayon to make their own pictures at home.

The McHugh building was all bright colors and very fragrant Tuesday, July 26, when each child brought in flowers of all sorts to share for our flowers theme. Eleven children told about their real flowers, artificial flowers, pictures of flowers and even flowers on their clothes. Then they pretended to be little seeds and slowly grew into big flowers with the help of pretend dirt, water and sun. Marie read stories about different kinds of flowers and how they grow.

Storytime with Marie had kids hopping to a frog theme


These children attended story time: Elijah Dorse, Tyler Reinke, Hazel Jacobson, Gunnar Melgaard, Lauren Peterson, Kate Peterson, Kenna Hennen, Isabelle Melgaard and Charlie Peterson. Library Storytime is held every Tuesday this summer through August 16, at the McHugh building (next to the bakery) from 9:30-10:30 a.m., for children ages 2-6. There is no registration required, but children must be accompanied by an adult. COME JOIN US! (Photo submitted by Marie Mavencamp)

“Ribbit, ribbit” - The McHugh building sounded like a big pond when nine children enjoyed a frogs theme. They listened to fun stories about frogs, and even acted out “Five Green and Speckled Frogs” with frog puppets, and hopped around the room adding frogs to their line until everyone was participating. Then they picked out their favorite frog picture to color. At the end of storytime they received a snack of “logs and frogs” to take home and make “frogs on a log” to eat.

A small group of “Books with Boone” loyalists gathered at the Maple Lake Library this week, and shared their mutual affection for the Maple Lake Bakery.

The readers also checked some local papers for tasty recipes and worked on a crossword puzzle that was all about baking.

This week was all about the newspaper at Books with Boone, beginning with our own Maple Lake Messenger. The biggest group of readers so far this summer explored the library’s “Local News” section to peruse the papers of nearby communities and had a chance to write their own newsletter, the Books with Boone Briefly, copies of which will be displayed at the library.
