The Children's Room
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Ethan Clark proudly wears his Dr. Seuss hat to celebrate the author’s birthday.
Ethan and JJ play the Dr. Seuss ABC matching game and the children modeled their hats.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Exploring the many choices of Dr. Seuss books at the Wiscasset Library Children’s room was enjoyed by all at this Wednesday’s storytime. The children played a matching game that coordinated with Dr. Seuss’ ABC book and all his silly characters including Ichy Ichabod, Rosy’s Red Rhinoceros and even the Zizzer Zazzer Zuz himself! Everyone then made their own Dr. Seuss hat and discussed how talented and entertaining Dr. Seuss will always be.
Story Time takes place each Wednesday at 10:30 and all are welcome.
Something Funny Goes on at the Library
Children at the Wiscasset Public Library enjoyed having reporter, photographer and cartoonist Ben Bulkeley present a program on drawing cartoons for comic strips. This was a terrific program geared towards ages seven through thirteen and reflects a very popular style of reading for this age group. Ben was very enthusiastic and engaged the children with different methods of pinpointing the subject matter for the comic strip. By using a white board, Ben demonstrated techniques on drawing cartoon characters by starting with a cartoon image of himself. Next, it was the children’s turn to create a self portrait “cartoon style”. By the end of the program, everyone was drawing three to four segment comic strips with a joke that went along with the illustrations. Keep your eyes open for the next few weeks, you may even see some of their work in the local paper!
