SHOW DAY: SUCH A LIBRARY!

We kick things off with a live-action and animated show about a wacky librarian, a magical book, and lots of animals!

Based on the book Such a Library! by Jill Ross Nadler (also known as Page Turner).

CRAFT DAY: PET POP-UP BOOKS

With an old file folder and a pair of scissors, kids can create their own magical pop-up books to celebrate the pets and animals they love!

MASHUP DAY: PET PAL OPEN-FACED SANDWICHES

What is part art project and part recipe? This deliciously crafted treat!

All you need is a slice of bread and any edible fixings you can find to add some tasty pizzazz.

GUEST DAY: JAMIE KATZ, PET DETECTIVE

Jamie Katz, pet detective

Yes, pet detectives are really a thing!

Jamie Katz (Katz is her real name!) is one of the best pet detectives Kenny and Page Turner know. They found out first-hand when Jamie helped them find their lost cat, Philo.

Jamie will introduce us to her sniffer dogs, Gable and Fletcher, and show you how she trains them to help find lost pets.
