LIVERPOOL — The happy children gathered around the excited guest reader as the sun shined brightly in Onondaga Lake Park right around noon Thursday, Aug. 5.
Joyful little dog Lola wagged her tag and let out a woof.
Assemblywoman Pamela J. Hunter smiled and flipped the pages of “The Magical Yet” by Angela DiTerlizzi. She emphasized how, yes, you can, as the kid on the pages overcame everything life put out there.
This Story Time during the LPL2Go Community Engagement’s Book Bike cart’s weekly trip to Picnics at the Park was a rousing success for listeners and the speaker, both.
“This is wonderful,” Hunter said after chatting with some family members and caregivers who lingered following the Story Time. “I always love spending time doing this kind of reading to the children.
“I love to see the wonder in their eyes as the words on the page jump out to them,” said Hunter, who was instrumental in the Liverpool Public Library securing the grant that enabled the purchase of the Book Bike cart that travels to bring books to so many around the community. “Hopefully this kick starts young readers’ lifelong love for books, which is what I have.”
