‘The Hat’ 1st storytime of year

By Librarian Fran Smith

Webster County Library


On Jan. 8, children gathered for the first storytime in 2014.

Despite the frigid weather all arrived eager to hear Ms. Nicole read “ The Hat” by Jan Brett, a story about a hedgehog that had a woolen sock stuck on his head.

The hedgehog convinced his animal friends that all animals needed a hat for the bad weather. The animals found hats and scarves that had blown off a clothesline and began to wear them. Lisa, the owner of the clothes, finally found the hedgehog and removed the sock.

After the story, everyone decorated their own hedgehog with construction paper. Storytime is each Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
