Donna Skinner writes from the Children’s Dept:
Last night was the Falmouth Public Library’s annual Holiday Pajama Storytime at Highfield Hall. This event is a collaborative effort with The Coalition for Children and The West Falmouth Library. There were stories read, songs sung, and dancing snowflakes! Our staff and patrons received a warm welcome from Highfield Hall. There were wonderful holiday stories read, but one book, according to its cover, is “perfect for any occasion”. The Gift of Nothing by Patrick McDonnell is a simple story of a cat named Mooch pondering the perfect gift for his friend Earl the dog, who already has everything. Mooch discovers the perfect gift would be nothing, and he sets out to find it. This story explores the meaning of friendship and gift-giving, and has a lovely ending with two friends sitting together, enjoying nothing and everything. Please stop by the Children’s Department if you would like any book suggestions for your family this season.
