Dolly Parton’s North Star Imagination Library in conjunction with the Berry Room of the Noel Wien Public Library presents Family Fun Night: Which Came First, The Chicken or the Book? A free evening of fun for preschoolers and their families! Come see a live chicken (weather permitting), make a chicken craft, hear the book The Chicken of the Family by Mary Amato, and enjoy more activities for preschoolers.
I won’t be there, but it sounds like so much fun and I’m thrilled that my book has been chosen as the read-aloud.
This program is presented by Dolly Parton’s North Star Imagination Library and Best Beginnings, with host location site provided by the Noel Wien Public Library.
