Only a few weeks left for Summer Reading...
A five-year old came into the Copperopolis Library with her Mom and picked out a couple of books to read at home and to tally on her summer reading Passport. Before leaving, she asked to play in the Puppet Theatre, located in the children's area. Librarian Shannon suggested she make up a story using the puppets and props.
With her Mom as the audience, she made up a story about an alligator and a bear who have to share their lunch with the other animals. There were some elaborate negotiations over who gets which food and why but, in the end, they all ate happily ever after. Her puppet performance included voice changes and a song at the end.
For her creative storytelling, this little girl earned additional 'reading time' in her summer reading log!
