CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - Musician Patricia Shih turned the Chappaqua Library into a winter wonderland on Wednesday to make up for the lack of snowfall the area has seen this winter.
Children 4-years-old and up, whose chances to play in the snow and go ice skating have been limited this season, were invited to participate in winter sing-along songs and other events.
"Its sweater weather today, what is up with that?" said Miriam Budin, head of the children's department. "Its February; where is the snow? Where is the ice? Dont you want some snow and ice?"
Shih, who lives in Huntington, Long Island, performed dozens of audience participatory songs revolving around winter and asked children to share their favorite parts of the season. Answers ranged from popcorn to snow to hot chocolate.
How many of you like winter? Raise your hands," Shih asked the crownd. "OK, some of you. None of the adults. Thats about right.
Following Shih's performance, some children applied wax paper to the bottom of their shoes and slid across the theater floor to mimic ice skating.
