Everyone is outside enjoying the gorgeous weather while they create their sand castles with glue and beach sand. Readers of all ages, like Daphne Bains, enjoys story hour at the Wiscasset Public Library.

It almost felt as if we all were at the beach with the temperatures reaching almost 80 and by reading Ladybug Girl At The Beach by David Soman. The story describes all of the fun activities to enjoy at the shore such as flying kites, collecting shells, chasing the waves as they roll back into the ocean.  All of the children were very excited to remember their previous trips to the beach and how much they look forward to more this year.

By using a paint brush, we all filled a sandcastle stencil with glue and then sprinkled beach sand on top to give our castles authentic color and texture. Next the children chose two seashells to have glued onto the castle just like decorating a real one at the beach!

Story hour is every Thursday at 10:30 at the Wiscasset Public Library Children's room.  We are located at 21 High Street, Wiscasset.  All good listeners are welcome to enjoy a few good stories and an activity to follow.
