Mrs. Fisher Cat Visits Storytime!

Miss Kathleen read The Leaf Man today at Storytime and who showed up?

None other than Mrs. Fisher Cat from the Calico Critters Fisher Cat family!

Storytime was lots of fun today. We had a nice group of kids at our Corinth store to hear Miss Kathleen read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert.

Leaf Man, published in 2005, is a beautiful and very creative book. Ehlert collected leaves in a plastic bag and photocopied them to keep their beautiful colors. She found leaves of all shapes and sizes around the country – even in Kansas City! Then she made the leaves into colllages, creating chickens, ducks, geese, pumpkins, turtles and lots more. Ever page is a different collage of brightly colored leaves.

Crafting Fun With Brain Noodles

Using your noodle has never been this much fun!

We can’t quit playing with Brain Noodles Bugs Kit Brain Noodles™ …and neither can kids who come into our stores! These twisty, bendy crafts (think jumbo, over-sized fuzzy pipe cleaners) are bright, colorful and fun for all ages of kids and kids-at-heart. Jumbo silky fiber stems that bend any way you want, Noodles are amazingly versatile and can be turned into anything you can imagine. They can even be thrown into the washing machine if they get dirty!

Brain Noodles™ can be used again and again in unlimited ways. You can create free-form or follow instructions that explain how to make all sorts of things! Brain Noodles™ are perfect for crafts and quiet play time (they’d be incredibly easy to take along to a restaurant for any restless kiddos!), but they also make great party favors and birthday gifts. Turn Noodles into the recipient’s first initial for package-toppers (we’ve been known to bend and attach a Noodle or two onto gifts we wrap at our two stores)!

Use Brain Noodles™ to make:
· A Halloween jack-o-lantern or a gobbling turkey for Thanksgiving!
· A fuzzy tic-tac-toe game!
· A tiara for a princess
· A dinosaur or a dog or a bug
· Anything your mind can dream up!
