STOCKPORT

The Stockport Public Library’s summer reading program started out with eight children the first week. They talked about dinosaurs and the fossils in the rock the archaeologists had to dig out to find the dinosaurs and other creatures that roamed Earth. Then the children made their own “fossils” out of clay with insects and leaves.

The “game of the day” was to pretend to be archaeologists, and with toothpicks in hand, carefully dig the chocolate chips out of a cookie. After finding out most of the children had more than their estimated number of chips in their cookies, they ate them plus a few more cookies for a snack.

Next week, the summer reading series will go on an adventure about gardens and vegetables.
