The White Salmon Valley Community Library invites children age 5-9 years to the new "Imagine That!" series of events designed to bring some favorite books to life through creative, hands-on games, readings, crafts and more.
Every third Saturday through May at 1 p.m., join the library staff and volunteers as they explore the world around us through books and activities.
The fun begins on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 1 p.m. as organizers read "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs" by Jon Scieszka.
Attendees will discover the elements of a fairy tale; learn some new jokes and games; build wooden, straw, and clay houses to display in the library; and even have a little snack.
The series continues on Feb. 20 with travels from "Flat Stanley" by Jeff Brown where participants will create their own "Stanley" postcard to mail around the world.
On March 20, have fun with "I Spy" by Wick/Marzollo and more hidden picture puzzles. Each child will design his or her own puzzle using recycled materials, and then will create a book from our designs.
"Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock" by Eric Kimmel will come to life on April 17 with a science experiment leading up to a participant-led theater.
The series concludes on May 15 with a pirate-themed party based on the book "Pirate's Alphabet" by Patti Wigington.
