Summer reading program underway

By: Jeannine LeJeune
CROWLEY - The Acadia Parish Library has started their annual summer reading program and this time children will be traveling the world through books.

The them of “One World, Many Stories” will be the binding factor during each story hour held at branches across the parish. Wednesday, the Crowley branch held its first of the summer and many kids were in attendance to learn about directions and traveling through books, crafts and much more.

Bernie Sarver, a librarian at the Crowley branch, started the hour explaining the differences between directions and what is needed to travel. Small toy compasses were then given to those in attendance to further explain direction.

“You got to know where you’re going when you’re going around the world,” said Sarver to the kids.

The world traveling through books then began as Sarver read five books to those in attendance. She started with “Whoever You Are,” which talked about how everyone in the world has similar feelings despite differences in location, language, skin, etc.

Other books read were “We’ll All Go Flying,” “Five Little Monkies Sitting in a Tree,” “Splat the Cat Sings Flat” and “My Many Colored Days.”

The hour concluded with craft time. For Wednesday’s craft, the kids each received plastic boomerangs and stickers of modes of transportation–planes, trains, cars, etc.–that the kids used to decorate their boomerangs.
