Monday, October 5th 2015 9:30am

Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the bravest Chihuahua of them all? Skippyjon Jones, the Siamese cat who thinks he’s a dog! While his sisters listen to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Skippy bounces on his big-boy bed and heads off for the REAL adventure awaiting him in his closet. Once inside, he finds himself in a magical snowy forest of make-believe, where the seven Chimichangos challenge him with his most dangerous task yet: to wake up Nieve Que, the frozen princess, by kissing her! Yuck! Will this hero agree to don a prince’s pantelones and save his poochitos?

With rhymes, rollicking wordplay, and mucho fairy tale fun, this fuzzy tale is sure to end happily ever after.

“Mobilize Columbus” A Perfect Balance

Friday, October 16th at 10:30am

A Perfect Balanceis a multi-media theatre performance that explores and celebrates the artistic process. We follow Sandy, an artist/inventor on a journey to find his masterpiece. The play, which integrates music, movement, text, puppetry and visual art, celebrates the sometimes rocky road of discovery-of creating something that is wholly new and wholly your own. We hope A Perfect Balance will inspire your students to make connections between Sandy’s inventive journey and their own creative endeavors.

What could be fancier than Christmas?







Presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations, Christmas cookies with sprinkles—and who could forget the tree? After all, there is no such thing as too much tinsel. Ooh la la! This year, Nancy is especially excited about decorating the Christmas tree. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money and has been waiting for Christmas to come. But when things don’t turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?

In this merriest of stories from bestselling duo Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, Nancy proves once again that a little fancying up can go a long, festive way
