We are so delighted to announce the return of Third Thursdays at ThorpeWood, a nature-themed storytime event. In years past, this event was held in our ‘tree room’ in front of our beautiful tree mural. Stories were read by different local librarians. We hope to return to this perfect storytime area in the future, but in the time of COVID, we are opting to hold our storytime outdoors. Children and their families get to sit on haybales near our barn for the storytime, then head out on an adventure.
For our first storytime event this November, we read ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. Following the reading, we colored and constructed paper binoculars which the children wore around their neck for the big bear hunt that followed. During this, we tromped through the woods, keeping our eyes peeled for a bear sighting. Although no live bears made an appearance, we were delighted to find painted wood cut out bears at the pond. These fun cut outs were loaned to us by our wonderful neighbor Barb Palatucci.
We hope to see more families at our next event! Please email [email protected] to sign up.
