Thursday, April 23 at 4:15 The Magic Hat and
Thursday, May 21 at 4:15 Rap a Tap Tap

The Magic Hat by Mem Fox
One fine day-and without any warning at all-a magic hat appears in the sky. It tumbles
and bounces through the air and makes magic everywhere it lands. Children will
participate in rhyming activities and decorate a hat and magic wand to take home in
addition to a free copy of the paperback book.

Rap a Tap Tap – Here’s Bojangles- Think of That! By Diane and Leo Dillion
Caldecott medalists Leo and Diane Dillon offer a rap-a-tap-tap celebration of dance
that will have readers clapping and tapping along. Children will participate in
rhythm and rhyming activities and make a little drum to take home in addition to
a free copy of the paperback book.

This resource is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by State Library of Iowa.
