Well, I don't think that could have gone any better!!! The Stone community of readers was absolutely carbonated with excitement about our book parade that took place on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 12! Mother Nature is obviously also a book-lover, as she provided a storybook-perfect warm autumn day as a backdrop for over two hundred kindergarten through third-grade participants, fully costumed as favorite book characters and carrying corresponding titles. After marching through all three floors to the cacophony of cheering upper-grade crowds, the children continued their merry march around the playground, beneath the flashing bulbs of parental paparazzi. It was really quite amazing, all the way from "Once Upon a Time" to "Happily Ever After." The effort and imagination that went into the costumes speaks to the commitment of our parent body, the energy of our staff and the wonderfulness of our truly amazing and inimitable children (if I do say so myself). I'm so glad we took the time to remember that children still love to pretend, and that they can use that power to connect with the characters in the books they enjoy. Read on!
