Saturday Morning Fun!

Children’s Story Time is every Saturday at 11:00 am in the Children’s Room at the FoxTale Book Shoppe.  We read books appropriate for the child’s age, and there is no age limit (really).  There is a dance/sing period following the reading, followed by tattoos and stickers before the children leave. We love the kids and they have a lot of fun– We know WE do!

Saturday, May 5 at 11:00am

Excited to welcome local author Shanda McCloskey – writer/illustrator to FoxTale with the debut of DOLL-E 1.0!

A STEM-friendly tale of a girl and the doll she upgrades to be her new friend, for fans of The Most Magnificent Thing and Rosie Revere, Engineer.

Charlotte’s world is fully charged! With her dog at her side, she’s always tinkering, coding, clicking, and downloading. She’s got a knack for anything technological–especially gadgets that her parents don’t know how to fix! Then, she receives a new toy that is quite a puzzle: a doll! What’s she supposed to do with that? Once she discovers the doll’s hidden battery pack, things start to get interesting…while her faithful canine sidekick wonders if he’ll be overshadowed by the new and improved Doll-E 1.0! With a little ingenuity and an open mind, everyone can be friends in this endearing, modern tribute to the creative spirit of play.
