Coming up in November, children ages 4 to 8 years may participate in the two-part Stuffed Animal Sleepover program in the Trove. On Friday, November 16, 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, November 17, 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.
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.
