Here's a fun twist to storytime - add a little cooking class to spice things up!
Join Nancy Wilson, founder of Mam Papaul’s Food Products and a former teacher, for the new Kids Menu Series: Storytelling at the SoFAB Culinary Library
. She will read aloud food themed short stories, make a dish to go along with the story, and discuss the larger themes of the tales. The programs are recommended for children ages 3 1/2 to 7 and parents or guardians must accompany younger children.
Space is limited and spots will be secured on a first come, first serve basis.
