Unruly Space Blobs!

This morning’s rain tried to wash away the story time crowds at the Johnston Public Library!

Luckily, things like snow, sleet, wind, and torrential downpours never stop the townsfolk from showing up for fun and adventure!

Some unruly space blobs attempted to crash our party!

Fortunately, a few kids who were strong in body and mind were able to chase off the invaders.

And just when we thought we had discovered a [...]

There were many familiar faces [...]

It’s Time to Spin the Wheel!

The Johnston Public Library was filled to capacity this morning during story time!

Since IPTV and the library are both located in the same city, they let me have a free spin on their prize wheel!

The prize I won was a safari around the world.

But fear not! I’m not going anywhere until I celebrate “One World, Many Stories” next week during my final few Reading Road Trip stops!
