Shooter's Comments: I went to the Allen County Public Library's Dupont Branch today and took photos of kids dropping off their stuffed animals for a sleepover party. The sleepover was for the stuffed animals only, which I found rather amusing.
The children listened to a story called "When the Lights Go Out" and then they put tags on their little friends and will pick them up tomorrow morning. The librarian said they will do several different things with the stuffed animals, which I thought was kind of cute.
They were going to have a pizza party, read books, play with Legos and then have races with the book carts. The next morning the children will see photos of what happened and will create scrapbooks.
I got a nice moment of Joy and Jac (mother & son) smiling together while listening to a book. When going to assignments like this, you don't know what to expect. You have to seek out little moments like this to try to tell a visual story.
