March is National Reading Month. This annual celebration is designed to encourage reading as a fun activity for the whole family. Various community organizations are helping us promote reading in fun ways. On March 4, the Plymouth Canton Preschool staff presented a storytime in honor of Dr. Seuss. Later in the month, Community Finanacial and the Kiwanis Club of Canton will be at the library to share their love of reading.

It's not a squirrel, it's not an umbrella, it's Chicken Big! In this hilarious tale of a very large creature, we get to use our investigation skills to discover exactly what this very large, yellow creature is. Is it a sweater, or an elephant? You'll have to read it to find out!
We have many other chicken adventures to choose from, maybe even a Chicken Little!

What comes in all kinds of colors and is really sweet and chewy? Bubble gum, of course. The 2nd week of March is Bubble Gum Week and it's not just for chewing. There's bubble gum ice cream, bubble gum slushies, bubble gum lip gloss… The possibilities are all over the place, and it's a favorite flavor for many kids. There's also the important job of blowing bubbles and competing with bubbles. There are even World Bubble Records out there. So if you have a lot of hot air, blow it into a bubble today, and watch it grow (or pop!).

When I think of St. Patrick's Day, I think of the color green. Frogs, leprechauns, grass, green beans, there are a lot of green things in this world. Sure, you hear a lot of Irish songs for the holiday, but there are many other "green" songs out there. Here are some other songs that celebrate all things green!
