Summer Children’s Series Readings
Posted on June 7, 2012
The Old Town Hall Bookstore at Wheaton College will host the first of its summer children’s series readings on Wednesday, June 27 at 10 AM upstairs in The Little Lyon’s Den.
Per our theme: “Travel afar, yet stay where you are,” we shall be visiting Africa with our armchair adventure reading of “Safari, So Good,” written by Bonnie Worth and illustrated by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu—a Cat in the Hat Learning Library selection. Excerpts from Ted and Betsy Lewin’s, “ Gorilla Walk” will also be featured, as well as some assorted poetry and information about Africa.
Raffles, snacks, and refreshments will be provided.
The bookstore is located at 10 Taunton Avenue in Norton.
To sign up, please call us at 508-285-6941, or send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Wednesday, July 11 at 10 AM, there will be a special presentation, appearance and booksigning by both the author and illustrator of “Willow’s Walkabout,” a newly published book about a true, Stone Zoo-escaped wallaby in a fictionalized tale of his touring Boston—our “Australia” story.
On Wednesday, August 15 at 10AM, the third and final reading of the series will be Ruth Heller’s “Galapagos,” a colorfully illustrated and richly informative rhyming reading. Poems and information will be integrated with all aforementioned storytimes, as well.
Thank you—and looking forward to seeing all who can attend!
