The children attending the special Altrusa led Story Hour at the Escanaba Public Library on Nov. 2 found a new use for fallen leaves. After listening to the picture book “Leaf Man,” illustrated by Lois Ehlert, and using their imaginations, they created figures out of autumn leaves, acorns, and twigs. Children’s librarian Patt Fittante introduced the Altrusans, Frances Michaels, Judy Owens, and Sharyn Deuel, who read several fall themed stories, gave guidance with the art project, and served snacks to a roomful of busy youngsters.
