Face painting and storytelling all combined into one was a treat for children attending the summer reading program at the Guntersville Public Library.

Starshine Faces was the guest presenting its Story Expressions Plus show.

Volunteers had the opportunity to have their faces painted like one of the characters, symbols or locations and to act out the story while others listened. Once the story ended, all the children in the audience had the choice of getting their faces painted like one of the volunteer performers.

Since Alabama is celebrating the bicentennial of its statehood this year, the show was based on what the territory was like over 200 years ago. The story follows the adventures of two young boys and shared myths and legends of the Native Americans in the area at the time.
