Mentor Library had a very special story time with wands, wings, wishes and glitter—so much glitter—at our Read House on Tuesday.

Kids from three to five years old dressed in fairy finery for fantastic fairy-themed fun. The story time began with Ms. Lisa reading a couple of books to the children about fairies and wishes.

Then our little sprites learned about and practiced all the different ways people can make wishes: by catching a feather; seeing a comet; blowing out a birthday cake; tossing a coin in a wishing well, and more.

The kids also decorated their wands and also made a special soup for the fairies to enjoy with shamrocks and glitter.

So much glitter.

When it was over, the sprites got a little snack of their own.
