Library hosts Pigeon Party for children

Participants at the Livingston Parish Library drew a pigeon, drove a bus and watched a puppet show on Jan 3.

This month, the Denham Springs-Walker Branch of the Livingston Parish Library hosted a Pigeon Party, an event for children featuring the Pigeon character created by children’s author and illustrator Mo Willems. The loud and often rude Pigeon quickly learns that he cannot always get his way, to share, and that being nice reaps more rewards than being mean in the puppet show based on “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!,” “The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!” and “The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?”

Before the puppet show, party participants got to “drive” a bus through a library obstacle course and learned to draw Pigeon. They enjoyed refreshments and made their very own Pigeon and Duckling finger puppets.

For those who missed the program, the Watson Branch of the Livingston Parish Library, 36581 Outback Road, will host their Pigeon Party at 3 p.m. Jan. 24.
