The week that I attended with my grandson, David, the color was green. Children's Librarian Mr. Steve demonstrated the magic of color theory by mixing blue and yellow food coloring together in a clear bottle of water, to make green.
Music for a scavenger hunt around the community room was courtesy of the Green Hornet's theme song, and stories focused on green--999 tadpoles that saved their frog daddy from a hawk by holding onto each other's tails as the hawk attempted to fly off with daddy frog.
A simple craft challenged children to make hand-print frog legs, with big white eyes for the frog--a great success. Crayon-box Storytime ran weekly, on Thursday mornings, through early August.
