Fun for Stone Booklovers around the city!
Lots of exciting events coming up! Check these out:
The Chicago Public Library Bookamania event at the beautiful Crystal Garden in the Harold Washington Library, featuring costumed storybook characters (Olivia and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, woo-hoo!), authors/illustrators Tad Hills, Don Tate, David Diaz and Fran Manushkin, performances of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, juggling, magic, puppets...and all free, free, FREE!
Bi-partisan theatrical fun at the Lifeline Theater, with their latest production, Duck for President based on the book by Doreen Cronin, running until the 25th;
Grown-up Stone Booklovers can have a lovely evening for the best possible cause by attending the spirited Write Club Stone Fundraising event on Friday night;
and in-house during report card pick-up, please visit our Stone Scholastic Book Fair, hosted by our hard-working PTA (or should I say, P-T-YAY!). New books are a great way to reward academic excellence (and to encourage it!). Please stop by and say hi in the library during report card pick-up, too, and check out the lovely new purple shelves that put books where our youngest children can actually reach them (thanks, Ms. Onofrio), the eye-candy that is the new mural inspired by Peter Reynold's picture book The Dot accomplished with the creative abandon of 2nd and 3rd graders, play choo-choo at the new kindergarten train table, share a quarterly overview/UBD for your child's grade level (print-out available on request) and converse with me about your child and anything I can do or we can do together to support your child's literacy.
Hope to see you soon, at one happy event or another!
