Our summer is off to a great start! We have been finding many adventures and have explored a few new places. Yesterday, we had an adventure in a place we’ve explored many times. Our library!

As part of the Storm Lake Public Library‘s Summer Reading Program, IPTV’s Dan Wardell entertained the kiddos with a program encouraging reading and healthy lifestyles. Now those topics may sound a little boring for young children, but I have to tell you, the program was anything but boring!

The kids were moving, they were laughing, they were interacting with their peers, and they were engaged. The grownups even had the opportunity to get involved in a new version of the ‘Hokey-Pokey.’ Shaking my imaginary tail all about wasn’t what I had planned for my morning, but I was a good sport and played along.

The girls were super excited to see the IPTV car at the library!

To get a peek at Dan’s Reading Road Trip adventures, check out his blog. You may notice a few familiar faces! A photo of my girls having fun with Dan Wardell after the program can be found here.

If Dan Wardell is planning a trip to your library, take your kids or grandkids. You will enjoy the 45 minutes of fun just as much as the kiddos. And no matter your age, check out your library this summer. You never know what adventures you’ll find in or outside a book!

  1. Aww, I’m glad they got to go. I really wanted to take the kids, because that’s all we watch at home, but I decided I probably shouldn’t take any time off since I was just off for 12 weeks. Hope it was awesome!

    1. It was fun! The best part was how interactive it was for kiddos. They danced, thumb wrestled, had a funny face contest plus lots more. I loved the messages of using your imagination and having healthy life habits. The Storm Lake Library plus many other area libraries have great summer programs. Hope you are able to catch some of them. Your kiddos may also be old enough to participate in some of the reading programs to earn prizes for reading (you reading to them counts too). Thanks for reading!
