Children’s Librarian, Terry Strong of the Hampstead Public Library, held her weekly pre-schooling reading program, this week, focusing on Gingerbread people stories for this year’s holidays.



Strong invited Hope Cusick, local poet and children’s stories writer to read her new story, “The Gingerbread Boy and the Candy Cane Christmas Tree.”



The young children and their parents enjoyed Cusick’s story, which ended with a distribution of tasty candy canes for everyone.



The program continued with other gingerbread people stories and the icing of gingerbread cookies by the pre-schoolers to celebrate Christmas and the holidays.
