We kick off the week with The Book from Outer Space. In this comedy adventure show, the kids at home must help Pixel the Librarian save the Intergalactic Library from destruction!
On our first craft-day, we’ll be making paper-plate flying saucers and alien pipe-cleaner finger puppets. Our crafts Space Case bags from duct tape and zip lock baggies, while older kids will conduct a fizzing “space ball” experiment/craft. They’ll also make duct tape “space cases.
Our guest author is Lori Haskins Houran, author of over 50 books for young readers, including her most recent picture book, “Space Mice”. We’ll also have another guest visit from Chris Grabenstein to talk about his out-of-this-world book, “Shine”. Our Guest Performer, EMMY award winner Janet Ivey, will be zooming all the way to us from her science-themed PBS show Janet’s Planet.
