Wendy Frank Weaves Magic


Wendy Frank This Saturday, July 26th at 10:30 am, Second Hand Prose Books is delighted to host a storytelling hour for kids with Wendy Frank.

Wendy's musical performances are upbeat and enriching for children, while encouraging each child's strengths to emerge. Wendy uses an array of props; guitar, puppets, drums, flute, ocarina, sign language, finger plays, rhythm instruments, yoga, sing-a-long songs, and singing picture books. Children have fun in their own way, by actively participating, dancing, clapping, playing a rhythm instrument, singing, observing, and learning.

Wendy's performance will be most appropriate for kids from 4 to 8 years old.

All children's books in the store will be an additional 10% off the normal purchase price.
