Mother Moose Storytime
September 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Saturday, September 8th, 2018, 9-10am
The East Side Freedom Library invites you — children and their adults, to join Mother Moose as we read through some Native American inspired books. Orso (the totally chill Freedom Dog) will be there to help us color some “stained glass” Dreamcatchers for you to bring home. Our books to select from include,
- “The Story of Jumping Mouse” (one of Mother Moose’s all-time favorites!) by John Steptoe. Based on a Native American legend, this story is about a mouse who goes on a long, dangerous journey to the far-off land of Legend. A Magic Frog tells him to keep hope alive and he tries to do that as he faces many challenges. In the end, he is awarded for his courage and compassion. (ages 5-adult)
- “Baby Rattlesnake” as told to Te Ata, and adapted by Lynn Moroney. Baby Rattlesnake cries and cries for a rattle just like his big brother and sister have, but his parents tell him he’s still too young. His crying keeps the Rattlesnake People up all night, so finally his parents give in. Thrilled with his new power, he mischievously uses his rattle, till one day he scares the wrong creature. (ages 4-adult)
- “The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses” by Paul Goble. “There was a girl in the village who loved horses… She led the horses to drink at the river. She spoke softly and they followed. People noticed that she understood horses in a special way.” (ages 5-adult)
