Storytime for the Trees!
May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Arbuz and Kavon – A Delightful Forest Tale
Stop in with your children, family and friends to join Plant Five for Life at Patagonia Pittsburgh’s Shadyside location on Sunday, May 19th from 2-4pm to enjoy a playful story, some light refreshments and other fun. Emerging local author and illustrator, Justine Kasznica, will be reading from her new book Arbuz and Kavon – a tale in a forest setting about community, caring, sharing and ecosystem dynamics.
While walk-in’s are welcome, if you pre-register here for any story session, we will enter you into a raffle to win a Patagonia item donated by Patagonia to Plant Five for Life. You must be present at the storytime session to claim the gift. In addition, all children of parents who RSVP and attend will get to take a small sapling to plant at home! A new reading will begin every half hour (at 2, 2:30, 3 and 3:30). Stay for more than one. Appropriate for all ages!
A $5 donation to Plant Five for Life per person to be given at the event is suggested and welcome. All donations will be directly earmarked to the purchase, distribution and care of trees in Allegheny County communities.
