North Wind Books in Hancock is hosting a four-part Children’s Unique Book series on Mondays this July.
Each program will highlight themed children’s books and a special guest host.
Yesterday’s theme was books about music. A crowd gathered at 11 a.m. to listen to special guest host and Finlandia University Campus Pastor Soren Schmidt sing and read to the children.
“We’re going to sing some very active songs so that the kids get motions and they get active. Some of the songs also have books that are associated with them, so they can take a look and peruse the books and look around at everything North Wind Books has to offer,” said Finlandia University Campus Pastor Soren Schmidt.
Afterwards, the kids ate snacks and made their own banjos and guitars out of rubber bands, stir sticks and paper plates.
North Winds Books has three more Unique Children’s Books programs scheduled.
Next Monday, to go along with an animal theme, author and illustrator Leslie Helakoski will read her newly released book, Hoot & Honk.
