My First Book Club #2: Bed-Knob and Broomstick

We're launching our first My First Book Club both to keep our younger guests reading through the summer and to give them their very first book club-style experience. Not necessarily designed as a classroom-style experience, the My First Book Club will be focused simply on creating a positive and fun social experience and getting young readers to talk about what they've read with their peers, focusing on their most and least favorite parts, as well as scratching the surface of their book selections to consider other messages and themes that the author might be conveying. Participants should arrive at the July meeting having finished Bed-Knob and Broomstick by Mary Norton. Although it's not necessary to have completed the book, guests should try to have read as much of it as possible to avoid the possibility of spoilers from other readers. Join us on Saturday, August 17th for a very special discussion of Freya & Zoose by Emily Butler where our young readers will be able to discuss the book with its author. Each meeting will start at 2:00 p.m. and we'll have cookies or some type of snacks for our readers!

Zoo Camp: Let's Do Lunch

It is a real feast with the beasts here at the Zoo! Discover who eats what‒ and who at the Zoo –as we explore the many hunting and dining techniques of the animals. Who has teeth just like you? Who doesn’t have teeth at all? You’ll have a ripping and tearing good time as we “gnaw” on uncovering the true “foodies” of the animal kingdom. This week-long summer camp is for children entering into 2nd and 3rd grade in the fall.

Zoo Camp: Curious Creatures and Fearsome Features

What would you think if you had a three‒foot nose or tall and twisted horns? Observe animals from head to toe as you explore the Zoo and find out why some creatures have such unique features. We will take an up‒close look at feathers, fur, fangs and feet to decide if the Zoo’s animals have fearsome features, or if they are just merely curious creatures! This week-long summer camp is for children entering into 4th and 5th grade in the fall.
