Join author David LaRochelle, illustrator Mike Wohnoutka, and Cow – the star of their book Moo! – for a one-of-a-kind show at Spring Valley Public Library! The fun begins at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23. After interviewing Cow about her travels, David and Mike will share a puppet show retelling of Moo!, get everyone dancing with some original music, and follow up with a group storytelling and drawing activity. Don’t miss out on this moo-velous opportunity for fun! Suitable for families and groups with children ages 0-6, the show lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Library Director Jenny Simon says, “We are SO excited and can’t wait to meet Cow, Mike, and Dave! Bring your camera; we plan to have a calf here for photo ops, and we’ll be serving milk and cookies, too!”

The Traveling Trunk Show is part of Once Upon a Reader, a statewide early literacy initiative that launched in 2014. Each year, communities in every region of Minn. will be united through programming based on a book with a Minn. connection.

Additional shows will be held at various locations throughout the SELCO region in June and September, and parents and caregivers can access program activities and early learning resources at the Once Upon a Reader website, www.onceuponareader.org.
