I've heard of these parties in many states so check your local PBS station to find out what events they have.
At the Reading Marathon:
We met the Cat in the Hat.
We also met Curious George, Buddy (from The Dinosaur Train), Martha Speaks, and Sid the Science Kid.
They had so many booths it took up two floors of this huge building. They had Japanese Drummers perform, a magician and fun experiments from a science lab.
They had craft stations all over. Our kids enjoyed (1) Getting to pick a free book (2) making sentences with magnetic words at the Cat in the Hat station (3) painting a “Word Girl” cape (4) using foam letter beads to make a “Word World” worm (5) making an “Electric Company” kaleidoscope (6) going in the mini planetarium for the ‘Zula Patrol”
All Aboard the Dinosaur Train
The kids dug through wood chips to find dinosaur eggs or plastic toys.
We’ll keep reading and track our minutes this coming December so we can attend again next January.
