A House for Hermit Crab – Children’s Book Reading

July 31, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Book Reading

July 31 – A House for Hermit Crab

This will be the SECOND in a series of 6 readtivity events!
Join librarian Christina for a FREE read aloud and hands-on art and crafting activity!
This event will be taking place at The Woodland Playhouse located at 5571 Route 28, Phoenicia, NY. 3:00 to 4:00pm

We will be reading “A House for Hermit Crab” by Eric Carle and crafting with attendees afterward. You will receive markers and shells to create your own perfect shell house. Each shell is unique – just as each person, leaf, and hermit crab are – and you will make them even more unique with this fun activity!

Each participant will receive a “readtivity” bag including:
– “A House for Hermit Crab” by Eric Carle
– A medium sized seashell
– 3 permanent markers of assorted colors
This 6 week series is sponsored by the Mid-Hudson Library System through an Early Literacy grant.
You may join in one readtivity, several, or all! Be sure to check on our website and Facebook page for more details.

Parents are requested to stay with their child(ren) during these events.
