Take-Home Craft
Say Goodbye to Winter with a Jan Brett Craft

We will wave goodbye to our winter mittens soon, but before we do, enjoy reading The Mitten by Jan Brett. Then pick up a craft kit from our lobby to make your own mitten and re-tell the story with your animals and mitten!

If you don’t have a copy of the book, you can listen to Jan Brett read it aloud using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3rRWzdHv5M

Craft Kits are available in our lobby beginning February 25th.
