For Kids Shaq Talks About ‘Star’ Power “Little Shaq: Star of the Week” by Shaquille O’Neal, illustrated by Theodore Taylor III; © 2016, Bloomsbury Children’s Books; 74 pages ——— BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER Being a responsible kid has its rewards. First, there’s the feel-good; you did well, and you can be proud of yourself. That leads to the second benefit: adults see your responsibility, and you’ll have earned their trust. And in the new book “Little Shaq: Star of the Week” by Shaquille O’Neal, illustrated by Theodore Taylor III, there are other bonuses, too. It was Friday, and Little Shaq was excited but not because it was almost the weekend. He was excited because it was Walter’s last day as their class’s Star of the Week, and Little Shaq was sure he’d be chosen next. Part of the job was taking care of Flopsy, the class rabbit, but that wasn’t what Little Shaq looked most forward to. He thought Show and Tell was the best part of being Star of the Week. For months, Little Shaq had been saving things to “show.” When Mrs. Terpenny announced his name, Little Shaq was happy but nervous, too; his first important task was to take Flopsy home, and that was a big responsibility. But when Little Shaq noticed a poster about a Pet Fair in the neighborhood, he had an idea: maybe, if he did a good job with Flopsy, his parents would finally let him get a pet. For awhile, Little Shaq had been asking for a kitten of his own; all his friends had dogs or cats, and he loved animals. But then his mother pointed out that he needed to be reminded to do his chores and make his bed. How could he be responsible for a pet when he was so irresponsible with everything else? It was a long week for Little Shaq, Job Hunting? The Help Wanted section can help. There’s something for everyone in the Shopper! Place your ad now: 605-665-5884 and it started when his brother, Tater, lost Flopsy. Then Little Shaq lost his voice, taking attendance. He was in charge of afternoon snacks and that got messed up, too. How could he ever show the adults in his life that he was a responsible kid after all? Take out the garbage. Put away your toys. Clean up the table. Make your bed. The list of chores is already a long one for your child so, go ahead, add another: read “Little Shaq: Star of the Week.” That’s a task he probably won’t mind. In this latest series book, author Shaquille O’Neal turns his attention to another lesson for children to gently learn: work hard, and you may get what you want. Fortunately, kids won’t find this story to be too preachy or unreachy; O’Neal’s main character admits how hard it is to be responsible and how, sometimes, it’s no fun. Even so, there’s a happy ending to this story and its illustrations by Theodore Taylor III, and kids are set up nicely for the next installment. Though there are some big words inside this book, I think early elementary schoolers should be able to tackle it and slightly older kids will enjoy it, too. At the end of a long, hard day, “Little Shaq: Star of the Week” will make a great reward. Steffen Featured At Hartington Gallery HARTINGTON, Neb. — The Wirth Art Gallery, upper level of the Hartington Public Library, will exhibit the works of artist Jolene Steffen, Crofton during the months of November and December. Steffen is a self-taught artist and is known for her many area landscape paintings. She also paints florals and portraits — working in a contemporary/realistic style in oil and watercolor. The gallery will have on display a variety of her artwork, both original oil canvas and prints as well. “I have appreciated all the support received from the area over the past 26 years. Yes, it is hard to believe 26 years have gone by since I seriously began painting the beautiful area where we live in northeast Nebraska. My husband and I work side by side on our farm and I am constantly inspired by God’s beauty in nature and the people I am surrounded by. I hope my work touches those who appreciate the same.” Steffen said. Stop by the Wirth Gallery during regular library hours: 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays; 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.

Valley MV Shopper M I S S O U R I VA L L E Y M I S S O U R I VA L L E Y Model Railroad Club Open House Nov. 25-26 Trains will be running at the Missouri Valley Model Railroad Club for its annual Thanksgiving open house, set for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 25-26 at the club headquarters located at the southeast corner of Cedar and West Third St. (lower level). The public is invited to come and re-live the excitement of railroading from the past up to today as it happened. Scale models will be displayed and operated during the open house. This will include models of steam and diesel locomotives from the turn of the century up to the unit trains of today. This includes Amtrak and trains that served the Yankton area such as the Milwaukee Road, Great northern and the Chicago and Northwestern Railroads from the past to the Burlington Northern — Santa Fe (BNSF) of today. This includes scale models of steam and diesel locomotives that were part of the lives of club members all the way back to the 1950s. Some of the background scenes of the villages will take you back to a time not so long ago when the railroads played quite a different role than they do today in communities such as Yankton and others of the Midwest. Scenes on the layouts will include fire stations, illuminated building and an operating lighthouse. In addition to the buildings, there are streetlights and traffic lights that cycle. Scenery includes mountains, rivers, rail yards, bridges and operating turntables at two roundhouses. At least four separate layouts will be featured, one in O gauge, two in HO and one in N gauge. The railroads offered dependable transportation over the years as they still do today. When highways and airports are shut down due to bad weather, they continue to operate. In the spirit of the song, “I’ll be home for Christmas,” visitors will be reminded of the dependable operation of the railroads from the past up to the present. There is no charge for admission. Donations will be accepted. For more information contact Francis Serr at 605-660-4237 or Don Hopf at 605-661-4123. The website is www.mvmrc.webs.com. The Missouri Valley Model Railroad Club traces its origin back to the fall of the year 2000. For a time the club met in the old Great Northern Railway depot located at the Dakota Territorial Museum. Since 2003, the club now meets in the lower level of the old JC Penney’s downtown building. People are welcome to visit the club on Monday nights each week from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
