The kids gathered shortly after 2 p.m. It began with just a few kids but the room filled rapidly and soon the chairs were filled and the floor was filled with kids waiting to hear a story.
After the reading the kids glued their fruit pictures in their baskets. There will be prizes at the end of the summer for the highest totals. Then it was time to check books out. Kids returned the books they read and left with more. Even the parents took out books.
After the crowd thinned we had good conversations. Although most of the group stayed on the ropes course and finished the projects, Katie came with us, and made a new Romanian friend.
