Children enjoy ‘Put Me in the Zoo’

By Dottie Dewberry

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, the kids at the Maben Public Library gave it their best shot on March 7 with spots and dots as Ms. Mary read a version of “Put Me in the Zoo,” which rhymes just like Dr. Seuss’ books.

Khloei Earley welcomed everyone with a hug at the big double-glass doors. How sweet. Then the library kids kicked off the day with glass-breaking screams just to set the tone that this was going to be another fun day at the library.

Soon Ms. Mary had them gathered around her feet to listen to “Put Me in the Zoo.“ The children zoomed in on the rhyming words, which I thought was really smart on their part.

The story centered on a big spotted dog that wanted to be in the zoo. After all was said and done they decided that he needed to be in the circus, which started a lively conversation (all at the same time) about circuses they had visited.

Then Ms. Mary gave each kid a picture of the big spotted dog and a selection of dot markers. Soon spots and dots were everywhere. Interesting!

Last they got into creative arts and amazingly enough drew all types of pictures to cover with dots.

Alas, story hour has to come to an end as the kids got books and gum before they left laughing and some yelling but not so loud out the big doors.
