Kids had a ball at the Junior Dispatch table at the 2012 summer reading program kick-off event on Saturday. Do you want JD to visit your facility for a kids day? See below for details.
On Saturday, the Junior Dispatch staff participated in the 2012 kick-off event for the York Libraries and GO York summer program. We had a chance to chat on WJTL’s Kids Cookie Break program and visit with hundreds of kids.
We were there to promote Junior Dispatch’s short story contest and show off our site, but the kids really came for the coloring pages, and we collected a bunch of them to show here.
This is only the first of several batches of coloring pages, so keep coming back over the next few weeks to see yours. Feel free to submit more, and we will post them too.
Lelyn, age 5, colored our short-story contest mascot.
Angel, age 10, colored our satellite-retrieving space ship.
Se Quinna colored this bewitching image.
Mary Rose colored the Dover Area Community Library's coloring page. Wouldn't it be great if our moon had so many colors?
Jena, age 5, turned our horse rider into a lovely pink.
Leighton added some great colors to our fierce dragon.
You can download and color our exclusive coloring pages here

Parents can then scan and e-mail the coloring pages and we will post them on Junior Dispatch. You can also drop off or mail your completed coloring pages or original poems, stories and reports to: Junior Dispatch, 205 N. George St., York, Pa. 17401.
