     The Children's Room

 

   

Grace finds the yellow egg with the prize ticket inside! J.J. cracks open his prize egg to see what he has won. Ethan admires his new Easter book bag that he won at the Easter egg hunt.

In celebration of Easter, the children at the Wiscasset Public Library searched the childrenís room for almost 50 eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny. Inside the plastic eggs they found treats, baby toy chicks and a secret note that they redeemed for a prize. Some of the prizes awarded were Easter book bags, Bunny hand puppets, and Easter egg bouncy balls. Before the egg hunt, we all listened to Bunnyís Easter Egg by Anne Mortimer and The Easter Egg Artists by Adrienne Adams. The rabbits in Adamís book love to decorate eggs so much, that they try painting a car, plane, house and a bridge that all turn out looking like beautifully decorated Easter eggs.

Author and illustrator Coreysha Stone will be promoting her book "Scary Larry" with all proceeds of book sales to benefit the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. "Scarry Larry" is a great tool for caregivers and educators in promoting social skills development. Although this story is about a cat, the message is one of self preservation, ...which can apply to many situations for a variety of young people who struggle in social settings. It is important to provide children and youth with opportunities to develop skills that help them stay safe and understand the world around them. Stone will be visiting The Wiscasset Library on Wednesday 4/23 for story hour 10-11. The events include a reading of Stone's book to be followed with a hands on activity/ craft. Signed copies of Stone's books will be available with all proceeds from book sales during the promotional events to be donated to the LCAS. On Saturday a LCAS representative will be available with information and a box for donations of pet food and blankets. For specific details please contact the individual locations or e-mail cmstone10@gmail.com.
