Where'd You Go, Bernadette?  by Maria Semple

On the best seller lists since it was released in 2012, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” is satire at its finest.  The book's brilliance exists in its duality.  Simultaneously serious and light, it is cynical and sarcastic without feeling mean or misanthropic.  The multiple points of view and the constant absurdity/reality will keep readers truly engaged.  Fun and smart, this great book is sure to make an impression.

Every group time will have movement activities, songs, stories and an art project all related to a topic for the week. Developed and presented by the library and VASD staff.

Parents are encouraged to fully interact with their child while singing, dancing, and participating in the music making experience. Parents will also receive a handout at the end of the class with all the words of the songs so that they can continue to use these songs in the future with their children. Children ages 9 months through 4 years are welcomed. Registration is required as space is limited, please register for each class that you would like to attend.
