“The Improbable Adventures of My Mischief” – children’s book reading on Sept. 26th at 6 pm

The book recounts the adventures of Archer and Fletch– two house rats catapulted from their condo and into a new life at Lincoln Center where they will discover compassion and courage on their way to making theater history.

A YAA series (Young Adult and After) Improbable Adventures is based on the real life mischief (that’s rat-jargon for family) of Archer, Fletch and educator/psychologist Dr. Cynthia Stuart. With author E. Merwin she has created a tale that will keep rat-keepers and other readers on the edge of their seats with NYC detail and a heartwarming (furless) tale.

Our book launch will include reading, healthy snacks for your rat (if you’re lucky enough to keep one) and a preview of Rat Kibble for the Soul!

PUPPETONIA – Puppet Shows for Babies and Toddlers

Since its inception, Puppetonia has taught children so much more than just their ABC’s and 123′s. The music and puppet shows incorporate important social skills, early academics, thinking skills, motor skills, and self-expression.
The music is fun and upbeat, and the children are encouraged to move to the rhythm, follow verbal instructions, practice sequential movements, and have a great time. And there are bubbles galore!
