Coming up in October and again in November, children ages 4 to 8 years may participate in the two-part Stuffed Animal Sleepover program in the Trove. On Friday, October 19, 2012 children can bring their stuffed animals friends to the library to listen to stories, make a craft, and tuck the animal friends in. On the following day, Saturday, October 20, 2012, children will return to pick up their animals, participate in games, watch a slide show of the overnight adventures, and enjoy a story and snack. Registration for the program is required and is currently being accepted for October.
The November Stuffed Animal Sleepover is scheduled for Friday, November 16, and Saturday, November 17, 2012. Registration begins Friday, November 2, 2012.
This program is not only great creative play, but also a wonderful opportunity for children to practice “reading” aloud to their stuffed animals. Children are encouraged to continue the fun by hosting their own stuffed animal sleepovers at home.
