Ms. Patsy Baldus, former teacher and Maine author, will read The “Wing Shop” by Elvira Woodruff, illustrated by Stephen Gammel. While published in 1991 this story has a timeless message of “there’s no place like home.”
The little boy, Matthew, moves with his family to a new home, but he misses his old home, and wants to find a way to get back there. He stumbles on a magical Wing Shop where a young girl outfits him with different animals or objects’ wings so he can fly. He has some crazy adventures but is finally happy to fly back home.
The virtual story hour will start with a wing craft that the kids will enjoy making at home. Next Ms. Baldus will read the story and will end with a simple writing activity to spark the young (ages 4 – 8) listener’s own creativity. The program should last around 20 minutes and will be filmed in “Mary’s Room” at the library.
Virtual Story Time will be aired live on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at 10:00 am on the Library’s Facebook Page. All you need to do is go to our Page and look for the live video. It will also be posted for viewing anytime at your convenience. Last month’s Virtual Story Time is available to watch on our Facebook page (under videos) and on our website look for the tab “Online for Children.” We hope your children and grandchildren enjoy these virtual events and their time with you at home.
