The Moon and Stars

Since the Gordon-Nash Library is hosting Skywatch this Sunday night, this week's Storytime featured several stories about the moon and the stars. In Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes, a small kitten thinks the full moon is a bowl of milk, and she wants a taste! Stars by NH author Mary Lyn Ray is about stars in the sky, but is also about other things in nature that resemble stars. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star by Jerry Pinkney is about a chipmunk trying to reach for the stars - and the book's words are the same as the song, so we all sang along as it was read. Last we read Possum's Harvest Moon, where Possum tries to have a "Harvest Soiree" for his friends after seeing the biggest, brightest moon.
We made a moon and star mobile for a craft. The moon was a paper plate, dabbed with silver glitter paint. Some of us drew the moon's "face" on it. Attached to the moon was a glittery star, decorated with sequins and glitter paint.

I hope we'll be able to see the moon and some stars through the telescopes at Skywatch!
