3/4/2013 - Granpa Green at county library Mar. 18

Cumberland County Library Children’s Reading Program

Monday, March 18th at 1:30pm Miss Melody will read Grandpa Green by Lane Smith. The story is told by a boy about his grandfather. The boy tells the story of his grandfather’s life through the love of the garden. The book is loaded with green! St. Patrick’s Day has everything green! Discussion about the color green will get the children thinking about all the things that are green in their world.

After the story, the children will hunt for the leprechaun’s gold! They will each be given a green card with a place for each coin. When they reach five coins, they receive a prize. Children will also make a sensory shamrock collage using cardboard, crayons, tissue paper, and green pompom balls. These activities will encourage number recognition and using the sense of touch.

All Children’s Programs are free and open to the public.  Cumberland County Library is located at 800 E. Commerce St. (Route 49), Bridgeton, NJ. Call 856-453-2210 ext. 101 for further information.
