Once upon a time there was a bead ...

Children learned that “every story has a bead” during a recent afterschool program at the library. Participants were able to make their own story bracelets using memory wire and a variety of attractive beads. The beads, in turn, helped the children tell original stories. For example, a striped orange bead may have introduced a tiger while a deep blue bead represented a river. Selecting beads and stringing them into a story or two proved both challenging and fun.
