A Virtual Storytime with a Live Reading of “Comforters & Toys”

Post updated 2.28.2021 — If you didn’t have a chance to join in our LIVE storytime, you can watch the video here. While you’re listening to Ms. MJ read the story, you can color your own quilt patch. (Click here to download the quilt patch coloring page)

Once your patch is colored, you can either MAIL IT to “Janel from Bell,” at Bell Socialization Services, 160 S. George St., York PA 17401 or POST IT to the storytime event page on Bell’s Facebook page.  Ms. Janel will create a quilt using all of the entries we receive by March 10, 2021, and we’ll share that here and on our social media pages, too.

From all of the entries received, Ms. MJ will pick a random name, and that person will receive an autographed copy of her book, Captain Dargo: Born to Serve.


Enjoy the imagination and fun of story time in your home surrounded by the children in your life. Grab a cozy blanket and a cup of hot chocolate to join in on Sunday February 28th, at 1:30 pm.

Local children’s book author, M.J. McCluskey, is offering a LIVE READING of the story, Comforters & Toys, which was written just for Bell, and inserted into the most recent issue of Resonance magazine.

Download the quilt patch coloring page in advance so your youngsters may color along as Ms. M.J. reads this delightful story of a child’s discovery of the joy of giving.
