Careful What You Wish For!

Tuesday, July 24 at 10 a.m. enjoy a “Dream Big Read!” story and craft time featuring dreams and wishes.  But, be careful what you wish for! Participants will meet lively literary characters with good hearts and good intentions, whose fondest wishes lead to surprising, and not always happy, circumstances.  All’s well that ends well, though. With a dose of good humor, and a little shaving off their egos, each character and their wish come round to a happy place in the end. Books, puppetry, song, wishing games and snacks included!

Story time and craft for ages 4 & up.
