An elephant speaks out at MC book reading just for children April 14


     Children age 3 to 7 will find great fun and discover new books at a “just for them” reading on Saturday, April 14 in Manchester College’s new Campus Store.

     The title is from the store’s selection of more than 200 books for children of all ages. The storytelling begins at 10 a.m. in the cozy reading room of the store in the College Union, next to the fireplace. Activities tailored to the reading follow. It’s all free.

     If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff, illustrated by Felicia Bond, is the selection for Saturday, April 14. The student readers are volunteers from a children’s literacy class taught by Heather A. Schilling.

     The storybook is available for a discounted price, said Nancie L. Meyer, store manager. Children’s titles on the shelves range from best-sellers to those needed and suggested by the College’s education majors and department, to titles requested by parents and other customers.

     Children and their families are invited to lunch afterward in the new Haist Commons and Servery. The cafeteria-style meal is $5.15 for adults; $2.50 for children 12 and younger.  (College students and employees pay their usual rate.)
