Storytime binds learning and fun at local library

Storytime:Good-bye to Abbey the Rabbit, who lives inside a magic hat

  • Sep. 26, 2012 11:00 a.m.

Cowichan Lake kids, ages five and under enjoyed a half hour of story time last Thursday, Sept. 20, as the Lake Cowichan branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library kicked off its Family Storytime for the fall.

Kids sat enraptured as librarian Diana Hutton read a crocodile story, and did a puppet show about a crocodile and five monkeys, both designed to be fun and encourage the counting skills of the youngsters present.

Storytime was followed by a chance for kids to have their hands stamped with fun images and go home with a sticker.

They also said good-bye to Abbey the Rabbit, who lives inside a magic hat, with hugs and kisses and loads of affection.

Storytime will be offered Thursdays throughout the fall, and families with children under the age of five are welcome to attend. Pop into the library to pick up the calendar of fall events.
