Children’s eyes lit up Friday morning as they selected a new pair of pajamas and a new book from donations made to their classroom.
An Auburn medical practice with a goal of making a difference in the community brought donations of new pajamas and books to an Early Head Start classroom of 2-year-olds at Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency.
The five children in the classroom crowded around a gray plastic tub filled with about 20 pairs of pajamas and 20 books.
Dr. Heather Wasileski and her staff helped distribute the items with classroom teachers — holding up books and pajamas for the kids to choose from. Children excitedly selected items that piqued their interest. For one boy it was a book about Disney Pixar’s “Cars” while one girl selected a book about Disney’s “Frozen” movie.
Children then huddled together with adults to listen to the stories their new books held, at one time pointing out pirate ships and octopuses to one another in a book about pirates.
