This year, they also signed up to participate. But, oh, the grand finale was MUCH better than the ice cream social they attended last year!
On Tuesday, they were treated to a puppet show, lunch and then a magic show.
Yesterday was Lucas Miller, the Singing Zoologist – who had the kids entertained, enthralled and excited about animals! Then, an early dinner was served (our kids thought it was a snack, since we normally eat dinner much later) and those who participated in the summer reading program were gifted with certificates and tshirts:
Then, we were ushered back into the library for a fabulous performance by the Texas Storybook Theatre of an Amelia Bedelia book – what a HOOT! Son-man even got invited up to help sort out what the idiom of “watch your tongue” meant (literal vs. non-literal meanings).
The kids said they enjoyed Mr. Miller’s performance much more…but, I could tell from the giggles and guffaws that the adults got their funny bones tickled by the Storybook Theatre performance!
Thank you, Medina Community Library. What a GREAT thing to do for our kids, encouraging them to read and giving them a bit of a reward for their efforts!
