Yay! It's Storytime -- IMAGINE! is the theme . . .

Main Street books hosts something wonderful...EVERY WEEK! And that weekly event is called story time, and involves the reading of some amazing children's books, a snack, and a craft. Bring your little munchkins by and prepare to be entertained!

This week we are going to read two brand new books --"Imagine" by Bart Vivian  and "The Deep, Deep Puddle" by Mary Jessie Parker and illustrated by Deborah Zemke and we are going to "Imagine" what would fall in our "Deep, Deep Puddle" that we build on the sidewalk with sidewalk chalk. We might draw whales or puppy dogs or even a house that might slip into our giant puddle. 

Fun in the sun because it is officially spring - -but, you might wear a jacket anyway. It is North Dakota, after all!
