Hoot and Howling Storytime

These readers listened to some stories about owls, played with owl puppets,
 made an owl puppet from a paper bag and tissue paper and watched an owl movie. 
 It was  a 'hoot and howling' good time and a good way to
beat the heat of an August blistering hot day.

Reading With A Community Star

Dr. Tanya Battiston, a Star Meadow Veterinarian in Farmington. wowed a crowd of three dozen people at a Reading With A Community Star program held in The Children's Department of Farmington Libraries.  Accompanied by her dog Brewster, Dr. Battiston read two stories and answered questions from the audience regarding her patients that day, her education, what dogs eat, and how to brush a dog's teeth with poultry flavored toothpaste.  She brought a dog skeleton, a tick encased in plastic, a cutaway of an animal's ear infection and a plastic heart, so that young people could get the inside story and "Dream Big!"
