When we’re young, stories, books, and poems are our first doorway into a magical world. This camp celebrates exploring our imaginations and imaginary worlds. By engaging with such stories as Malcolm Mitchell’s “The Magician’s Hat,” Mac Barnett’s “Extra Yarn,” Grace Lin’s “A Big Mooncake for Little Star,” Nancy Tupper-Ling’s “The Yin-Yang Sisters” and “Dragon Frightful,” and other exciting tales, we will read, do arts and crafts projects, play theatre games, and more. We will travel to far away lands…through books!
