Storytime about bats, ‘Bully Goat’

By Librarian Fran Smith

Webster County

Public Library

 

Even though Wednesday, Oct. 16, was a wet day, 11 children attended storytime at Webster County Library.

After the usual singing, Ms. Bonnie read “There was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Bat.” Jesse Putman helped Ms. Bonne hold the book so she could feed the old lady as she read the story.

Since October is National Bully Month, another story, “Llama, Llama and the Bully Goat” by Anna Dewdney, was read to the children. After reading Ms. Bonnie explained to the kids things that were nice and things that weren’t nice. They were told that it is OK to let someone know if another person is mean to them.

For craft time, the children made pictures of a bat using their hands and black paint to make the wings. Even though it was a messy craft, they all had a good time and did a great job.

After a snack everyone visited with friends, played on the computer and checked out books before leaving.
