We {heart} our librarian

We have THE best librarian, Mary Carol.  She plans the most amazing story times.  I’m sad that my daughter will be in school full time next year and unable to attend . . . . however, now I can spend some time one-on-one with my son.  I already have him signed up for a Creepy Crawly story time. 
Today we attended a Fancy Nancy Story time and it was all we hoped for.  Mary Carol had the place all decked out in pink and everything girly.  She had fairy wings hanging on the wall and a table display of books with a fancy chair for her to sit in.  As the girls walked in they were treated to a sparkly tiara, in light pink, hot pink, or lavender.  Then they walked down a pink runway and found a seat.  She then introduced her *assistants* (her daughter and a couple friends) who, true to character, had dressed in feather boas and fairy wings.

After one story she stopped and taught all the girls how to curtsy.  She even taught the boy siblings that got dragged along how to bow.  So cute!  After another story they talked about how to eat holding their pinky out.  To practice she passed out cookies to everyone and had them put their pinky through the hole in the middle so they could remember to hold it out as they ate it.

After the stories were finished each girl had a seat around tables draped in pink.  Each place setting had a cupcake, punch, ice cream with sprinkles, a bracelet and a ring.  Once they were finished eating they had beaded necklaces and bracelets to make.  She even included the boys as they had shields and top hats to decorate (although some made bracelets and necklaces like the girls).  Her crafts are always so creative and easy for even the smallest kids to do.

But that’s not all!!  As each girl left they received their own fairy wings.  Mary Carol hosts this event each year and it’s always full with a long waiting list.  My daughter, and son, both had a great time and we’re looking forward to the next story time with Mary Carol!
