Children’s Book Week At Oblong Books

This Saturday (May 12, 2012), Oblong Books in Millertown celebrates Children’s Book Week with a reading by children’s book author, Jenny Offill. Offill will be at the store for a special storytime to read her two picture books – 11 Experiments That Failed and 17 Things I’m Not Allowed to Do Anymore.

Here is some info from

“Is it possible to eat snowballs doused in ketchup—and nothing else—all winter? Can a washing machine wash dishes? By reading the step-by-step instructions, kids can discover the answers to such all-important questions along with the book’s curious narrator. Here are 12 “hypotheses,” as well as lists of “what you need,” “what to do,” and “what happened” that are sure to make young readers laugh out loud as they learn how to conduct science experiments (really!).”

This event is recommended for kids ages 2-6.

WHEN: Saturday (May 12, 2012)
TIME: 11:00 AM
WHERE: Oblong Books & Music, 26 Main Street, Millerton, NY.
