I wish I could show you the smiles on the faces of the students as they enjoyed guest readers for our annual “Share the Gift of Story” program in the library. Community members from the RCMP, Town Council and general public are setting aside time from their busy schedules this week to share seasonal stories with classes from Kindergarten to Grade 9.
Beside a virtual crackling fire on the Smart Board (which doesn’t show up in the photos very well), students enjoy a story and great conversation with people they may see in the grocery store and excitedly greet with recognition. As a huge bonus, I discovered that we have a talented storyteller in our community who entertained the Grade 7’s with a personal story of Christmas’ past.
