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.

“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. Then they made their own sweet treat – a s’mores snack mix to take home and share with their families. 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.

"Fly, fly, pretty little butterfly!” These words were chanted and sung at Marie’s Summer Storytime on Tuesday, July 12, at the McHugh Building. Thirteen children and nine adults enjoyed butterfly stories, learned butterfly songs, poems and finger plays. Many children brought pictures, toys and butterflies on clothes to share with the group. Elijah brought the four stages of the butterfly to show the children. Then they made their own butterfly with clothespins and tissue paper.

Storytime with Marie on Tuesday, June 21, was filled with all sorts of creepy, crawly critters as the children worked with bugs. They brought in pictures of bugs, toy bugs and even some real ones to share. Marie read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and the children “fed” him some very colorful fruit which helped to make his very colorful wings. They also read about and did a “Bug Dance.”

Books with Boone focuses on flowers


Those that attended the June 21 Books with Boone were, from left, Boone, Dylan Hennen, Kalli Hennen, Lisa Perovich, Larson Melgaard, Ben Ogram and Ellie Ogram. (Photo submitted by Terry Mooney)

The Books with Boone bunch gathered at the Maple Lake Library last week, with a focus on flowers. They talked about the library neighbor, Maple Lake Floral, which will be included on the Maple Lake business tour later in the summer. While waiting their turns to read to Boone, the brindle greyhound, the readers searched the library for seed packets and recorded which flowers like sun and which prefer shade, and they planted a sunflower to take home. We hope to see pictures of many successful gardeners later in the summer.
Parents and others interested in the program can read a little more about the weekly activities at the blog – www.pawsitivestepsllc.com/books-with-boone/maple-lake-library-summer-2016.
