Preschoolers hear "The Giving Tree"
Approximately 30 preschoolers gathered, Friday, at Neighbor to Neighbor for a simple lesson from "The Giving Tree."
Reading the children's classic book by Shel Silverstein were Dora Whitney and Myrna Shelton. This was the latest installment of the Reading with Leaders program.
Upstairs at the Neighbor to Neighbor Center in downtown Concordia, the children, ages 3 to 5, listened to the story about a friendship between a boy and a tree and how the tree continues to give the boy everything it can.
Downstairs, parents, grandparents and other caregivers relaxed with refreshments provided by the Sisters of St. Joseph who operate the Center for women and their young children.
Neighbor to Neighbor, 101 E. 6th, is host for Reading with Leaders, a yearlong storytelling program coordinated by the Sisters of St. Joseph's Neighborhood Initiatives office. It is funded in part with a grant from the Kansas Health Foundation.
The series began in September and will continue through May. Next session is at 10 a.m., Friday, April 12, with "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie." Each child registered receives a free copy of the book. Advance registration is required by calling 785.262.4215.
After the storytelling time, the children were able to try out the wide assortment of toys and books in the upstairs playroom. Before leaving, each child received a copy of the book, "The Giving Tree," plus a small bag of snacks.
