“Don’t Tell the Pigeon About This Party”

Friday, June 14

6:30 pm at The Book Stall


Young (and young-at-heart) fans of Mo Willem's Pigeon books won't want to miss our "Don't Tell the Pigeon About This Party," a sleepy Storytime featuring Willem's beloved Pigeon character. We'll read stories featuring the malcontent Pigeon, encourage audience participation, and have a snack -- remember that Pigeon loves cookies! Singing Happy Birthday will also be part of the activities. The Pigeon turns 10 this year! (The book that started it all: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!) Kids are encouraged to arrive in their pajamas and bring along a favorite stuffed animal guest.


This event is recommended for ages 3 to 6, with their adult caregivers, and is free and open to the public. (Note that Mo Willems will not be appearing.)
