Spring – time for kites! At Storytime, we read several books with kites in them. In The Wind Blew by Pat Hutchins the wind blew so hard, it took many different items away from the unsuspecting townspeople. When the Wind Blows by Linda Booth Sweeney told a funny story about a boy and his grandmother and their fun with a kite on a windy day. Stuck by Oliver Jeffers was about the process a young boy went through to get his kite out of a tree. And Princess Hyacinth (The Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated) by Florence Parry Heide was a wonderful story about a girl who floated and the adventure she had over her castle.
Of course, we made kites as our craft. After decorating with crayon, stickers, and stars, long tails were added with a string to hold on to. And our kites sailed!
