Holiday Puppet Shows
Sunday, December 7
2:00 - 2:45 pm
For families with children ages 5 and older
Enjoy a live performance of two charming puppet shows by Spring Valley Puppets, Three Wishes and Holiday Fantasy.
In The Three Wishes, Henry and Gretchen are given three wishes by a Magical Elf. This folktale favorite is flavored with a dash of dialog, a generous helping of humor and many plot twists!
Enchanted toys, fairy magic, and a clever mouse are just some of the surprises in A Holiday Fantasy, a story that unfolds to the music of Massenet, Glazunov, Lecocq, and more!

It may sound like a lot but when you spread it out, it only comes to 10 books a week for 2 years or 3 books a day for 1 year. When you register for the Imagination Library that will entitle you to receive one free book in the mail each month until your child reaches 5 years of age. A drawing will be held for a children's book donated by "Reading is Fundamental," which is supported by Macy's. (ages 4 years and younger) Click here for Reading Logs
1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App
The 1000 Books Foundation is proud to announce the release of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App. My son loves playing with an iPhone and iPad. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App allows him to “scan” books into his permanent library. We then just simply click the books that he has read and the App tracks his progress toward completing 1,000. The App has the ability to track multiple readers if you are reading to more than one child (or if you simply want to track your own reading). Best of all the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App is free.
To get the App now click here: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App
