For kids grades K–3 and their parents — A Christmas Carol retold for young readers
Hey, kiddos! Jenny Nelson, our new Director of Education & Community Outreach, is inviting you and your friends to gather around the breakfast table on Saturday, December 12 at 10AM to read Charles Dickens’ famous holiday story, A Christmas Carol, retold just for young readers by Adam McKeown and illustrated by Gerald Kelley.
This year, because we are all staying safe and staying home, we’ll meet virtually, on Zoom. Jenny will read out loud, and we can talk about all the great pictures — plus, there will be interactive fun, along with a downloadable activity book. Ask your parents to register (you can even invite them to join us, if you want to!)
There is a different version of the story for adults and older kids (A Merry Little Christmas Carol: A Playhouse Radio Drama) that will air on the radio — but this version is just for you.
All Storytime readings are at capacity, so that all of our young viewers can have the best experience interacting with our host and each other. Thank you for your interest in these programs! Be sure to sign up for email updates from the Playhouse to hear about more opportunities like this in the future.
For those who weren’t able to join Jenny for the reading in person, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Through January 3, 2021, we’re sharing a video of one session of Jenny and her new friends so you can read along from home any time you want!
