A special thanks to the Stone School Library's Booklover's Club, which has been meeting an hour before school several days a week to take care of the library and to do everything fun related to books and reading (and an occasional cup of cocoa), for their dedication in creating a dance interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Match Girl" for the holiday assembly. Though the story is a sad one, I think we agreed it captures the true spirit of the season, and of Andersen's story: look closely at others, and see what we can do to help them and to be kind; each individual is so valuable. I thought everyone did a beautiful job. (Sniff, sniff.)
Honestly, I wish we could do dance interpretations all day! Music, dance, story, and me yelling at everyone to try again! What could be better? It's nearly heavenly. Thanks again to my wonderful troupe/group, and best wishes for a great winter break from the library!
