ear to ear…..If you’re
happy Clifford’s here clap your hands!

Clifford the Big Red Dog came to the Oak Bluffs Library today! We greeted him with song, read his stories and made Clifford visors as well as colored 3 different pictures of Clifford. Kristina made red Clifford cookies and tan bone shaped sugar cookies for the children to enjoy! Have fun viewing what a great time we had!

Mother Goose visited on May 7th!

The 24 children at the PreSchool Story Time were thrilled to meet their idol, Mother Goose! We also took turns jumping over an unlit candlestick like Jack, acted out Little Miss Muffet, sang and chanted nursery rhymes, and colored pictures of their heroes: Humpty Dumpty (who was repaired in our version of the story!), The Cat & the Fiddle and Mother Goose herself!
