Kids Corner – So Many New Books!

We have filled the Kids Corner with so many wonderful new books!  Let me tell you a little bit about one of my favorites and a favorite of my daughter.

The Kiss Box by Bonnie Verburg and illustrated by Henry Cole

This is a beautiful story of how we may sometimes get anxious when we have to be away from our loved ones – whether it be for an errand, a trip to the grocery store, a business trip, or the first day of school. 

“Mama Bear was always home, and that’s the way Little Bear like it.  But one day she needed to go away — just for a little while.  “Will you come back?” asked Little Bear.  “I will always come back,” Mama Bear told him.  “And even when I’m not with you, I send you kisses every minute we’re apart…”“

To help Little Bear contain all of these kisses Mama Bear made him a Kiss Box and filled it with a hundred kisses.  “Every time you need a kiss, just open the jar, and a kiss will fly from me to you.”  Little Bear made Mama Bear a kiss box in return, “so they could send kisses back and forth, no matter where they are.”

The Kiss Box is a tender reminder that we are always together where it matters most:  in our hearts.

Don’t forget about our Childrens Storytime on Tuesday’s at 10:00 am.  For the summer we will be having themed mornings so come dressed up for the theme and we will have some extra fun stuff going on.
