Show: Such a Library!

Kenny’s many pets keep interrupting his Zoom call and he is frustrated! So Page Turner tells him the folktale, It Could Always be Worse. Then she gives it a modern-day twist by transporting the tale (and the audience) to a library filled with animals, a magical book, a wacky librarian named, Miss Understood. Based on the book Such a Library! By Jill Ross Nadler (aka Page Turner).

Craft: Pet Pal Pop-Up Books

With an old file folder and a pair of scissors, kids can create their own magical Pet Pop-Up Book just like Miss Understood’s!
