The Cheese by Margie Palatini
The Three Silly Billies meet Gritch the Witch and Goldie and the Three Hares while The Cheese stands alone! Join us to celebrate New Jersey’s own Margie Palatini and meet some of her wacky characters in their wondrous adventures through earthquacks and bedheads and badboys and even a visit to Old MacDonald’s Farm. We’ll travel through Margie Palatini’s topsy-turvy tales as we create our own wild and wonderful characters through pantomime, props, and parades.

A Story! A Story!
Discover again that far-away place, its beloved stories and its mystical, cunning creatures as we bring to life the folktales, rhythms and music of Africa, including the original story of the Kenyan lion named Simba. Play drums, learn African rhythms, sing and dance as we explore the magic of exotic Africa.

Seuss on the Loose
The Cat in the Hat knows a lot about that and the Mayor is there and the Alderman too, all waving big banners of red, white, and blue. Bartholomew Cubbins with his plainest of hats, Gerald McBoing Boing goes bonkers and well, that is that. So Horton steps in to save them all, because a person’s a person, no matter how small. There’s a Lorax, a Once-ler, and a Whisper-ma-Phone, oh the places you’ll go where you’re never alone! Meet the many colorful characters of Dr. Seuss and create your own Seussical adventure as we celebrate the works of Theodore Seuss Geisel—aka Dr. Seuss. Apple Montessori Schools will be on hand offering craft activities.
