Follow the Rainbow!
Stories, songs, crafts and activities about colors and numbers.
Each Tuesday, March 6 to May 22, 2018
Each Story Time session at Newport Public Library is twelve weekly programs with our Children’s Librarian, Mrs. Johnson.
Follow the Rainbow! is the theme for Newport Public Library’s spring 2018 session. The program, designed for children 3-6 years old, features stories, songs, activities and crafts about colors and numbers.
Story Time is a great way for children to interact with other children. They build social skills while listening to stories, singing songs and making crafts that they can take home with them. The activities in our Story Time sessions build confidence in children, and of course, it’s incredible fun!
The program is free of charge. Choose the 10 AM morning session, or the 1 PM afternoon session. Registration is requested. For information, or to register, call 567-6860, email email@example.com or visit the library at 316 N. Fourth Street in Newport.

To get in the mood for story time. Here’s a fun rhyming activity to try …
Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things, would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight;
I can open them wide;
I can put them together;
And I can make them all hide.
I can put them up high;
I can put them down low;
I can fold them together,
And hold them just so.
It’s great to set aside time to read to your child. It’s best to make sure it’s at a time when your child is not full of energy — like bedtime! Catch a moment when you both feel like reading, and create cherished moments of story time adventure!!!
