Build a fort with.....POOL NOODLES!
On Thursday, April 13, "We Fitness" will be here with oodles of noodles (and other shapes) so young builders can have an indoor field day constructing and de-constructing, climbing and jumping and just making their own open-ended fun! There will be two separate sessions. Please choose only one.
Registration begins Wednesday, April 5 @ 10am
Look for our upcoming Mother's Day programs in May!
A hodgepodge of different narrators in 1242 France introduce readers to three unusual children and one remarkable dog. As their individual stories unfold and their paths collide, tension reaches a fever pitch as an agent of the Inquisition nips at their heels. Gidwitz's epic medieval adventure packs in boisterous action, richly depicted history, and lovable underdog characters, all illuminated by Hatem Aly's stunning artwork. The Middle Ages have never been as exciting or as funny! * A Newbery Honor book * For Grades 4-9 Paul and Antoinette
Acceptance and respecting individual differences are among the many themes in this sweet story. Two unforgettable sibling pigs, an extrovert and an introvert, spend a typical day together. Paul and Antoinette are two thoroughly independent pigs that go against gender specific stereotypes, while expressing their charming personalities. They may have differences, but their love and affection for one another is obvious. While the text explores important issues, the illustrations keep it cheerful and heartwarming! A perfect read aloud for children ages 3-7.
