ALBION – Peggy Thomas, a children’s book author from Middleport, reads “Snow Dance” during a recent visit to Albion to meet with parents of children ages 0 to pre-kindergarten. Thomas shared tips about telling engaging stories to children.

Her visit was part of a four-part session organized by the Albion Rotary Club, the Albion school district and Head Start through Community Action.

The next session will be Thursday at 5:45 p.m. and will focus on prekindergarten and kindergarten readiness with the parents’ role. That workshop will include classroom visits.

Parents should enter at about 5:45 p.m. through the community entrance in the back of the elementary school. Child care is available for the sessions.

The program concludes on March 31 with a family fun night that includes children’s author Josie Waverly, professional storyteller Gretchen Murray Sepik, and other games, stories, prizes, refreshments and a book fair.
