Kids can explore new books and ideas through traditional folk tales, fairy tales and art at the Foundry Art Centre's new Children's Book Club.
The club meets once a month, (usually the first Saturday of the month) October through April. Kids will read each the book selected for the month, discuss the story and share their opinions while filling out a Passport to Reading activity book. An art project based on the story will complete the morning of fun. Attend all, one or just a few sessions.
At the last book club meeting in April, 2014, kids will celebrate with ice cream and an art party. Children may attend all or some of the meetings, and should register for each one they'd like to attend.
Designed for ages 3-8. Club size is limited, and advance registration is required. Call 636-255-0270.
