Rhode Island Festival of Children's Books and Authors
Full Band Show in RI!
301 Butler Avenue, Providence, RI
I found a wonderful description of this great event:
"Fall isn't just a season for beautiful foliage and crisp air, but a time for children to head back to school and make education a main focus, too. This month, don't miss the opportunity to widen your child's knowledge and love for reading at Lincoln School's The Rhode Island Festival of Children's Books and Authors. On October 19, some of the children book industry's greatest authors and illustrators will be flying in from around the country to attend this annual book festival. The Lincoln School will be prepared to pack in as many attendees as they can, providing opportunities to show children new books and put a face to famous names.
Starting at 9am, children will mingle with peers and engage in book-making activities that will express their creative sides. But best of all, story time in small groups will be led by some of the world's most famous authors. "Children get to see these authors first hand," says Amy Barrett, Lincoln School's Director of Publications. "It's a way for children and adults to get excited for books."
We'll be playing a FULL BAND show at 11:30 am to combine music with literacy, and we hope to see you there at this most wonderful event!
$5 for the whole day, what a bahgain! : )
