The Naked Truth About Story Time

NakedMoleRatIt’s a proven fact that little tykes find nakedness hilarious, which is just one part of the appeal of Mo Willems’ latest book, Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed.

It’s also part of the appeal of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale The Emperor’s New Clothes, so we’ve added it to the mix of books for this Sunday’s story time about getting dressed.

Of course the featured story is about Wilbur, the naked mole rat who decides that he rather likes clothes and insists on wearing them even in the face of ridicule and scorn from other naked mole rats.

So far, the line-up is looking like this: Elisha will show us a picture of a real naked mole rat (not nearly as cute as Wilbur, let me tell you!) and tell us a little about exactly what kind of animal it is. Then she’ll read, taking a break from the stories at some point so we can play a game of Pin the Clothes on Wilbur. (Not with actual pins, though… no mole rats, paper or otherwise, will be harmed in this game.)

We also have some very cool Wilbur name tags and stickers to give out. Sunday May 31 at 1:00pm, for ages 3 to 6. Absolutely free. No need to reserve a spot. See you there!
