Poland librarian Annette Ahrens led a story time full of colors and color exploration in the children’s room of the library Feb. 26. The event began with the children telling Ahrens about their favorite colors and where they found the colors throughout the room and on their clothes.

Ahrens read “Dog’s Colorful Day” by Emma Dodd, which was about a white dog with a black spot and how he came to have many different colors on his fur by the end of the day. Other color-themed books read were “The Deep Blue Sea” by Audrey Wood and “Wow! Said the Owl” by Tim Hopgood, which was about a young owl that stays awake to see the colors of the dawn.

Ahrens also led children through a variety of color-related activities and rhymes. One of the group’s favorite activities was an interactive story using the magnetic board, in which three different white mice jump into different colors of paint. They started with red, blue, and yellow and ended up making some very different color combinations.

The story time ended with children making a colorful and cloudy rainbow using colored paper and cotton balls.
