It’s our first adventure through the Once Upon a Time Machine as we head into THE MIXED-UP FAIRYTALE Show featuring some of your favorite fairytale characters and a real ten-foot-tall giant!
This week we’ll also make paper bag gingerbread houses and Little Red Riding Hood’s no-bake cookies, while older kids will play fairytale Madlibs and design magical “golden” eggs.
We have two guest authors for our kick-off week, including the man behind Mr. Limoncello’s Library, Chris Grabenstein, AND librarian, storyteller, and President-Elect of ALSC, Lucia Gonzalez! Lucia will talk to us about her Pura Belpre Honor Award Winning book, The Storyteller’s Candle. She’ll also perform an amazing bi-lingual folktale inspired by her book The Bossy Gallito.
Our musical guest performer this week is the Grammy-Award-Winning King of Kid-Hop, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo!
