What We've Been Up To: November

Here are some snapshots from recent programs we've had at RML - what a fun month it's been!

There are many times when Ms Patty and I think that what is leftover after storytime crafts looks just as cool as what we've made during storytime! Here's what one of the tables looked like after we did some leaf prints:

Our Next Chapter Reading Club for grades 2-4 recently chose The Gumazing Gum Girl: Chews Your Destiny by Rhode Montijo as their November book. We had a great time blowing and measuring bubbles and learning about the history of chewing gum.

I highly recommend this book if you want to learn a little more about the history of bubble gum!

 We also had a visit from storyteller Joyce Marie Rayno for our American Girls Tell Their Stories program. She really made the stories of Josefina, Kirsten, and Addy come to life! Afterwards, the girls made and decorated little ponchos for their dolls.

 If you have an American Girl fan in your house, be sure to check out these new titles we got in from their new Beforever series. They are adventurous stories with the beloved historical characters where the reader can choose from multiple endings!
