Go for the Gold🏅and Dare to Dream with MOCA!






The phrase Dare to Dream surrounded by the Olympic Rings logo, a gold medal, and the covers of the two books we’ll read during Storytime.


In celebration of the Beijing Winter Olympics and the athletes there dreaming for gold, we’ll be reading about two starry-eyed dreamers following their passions in Peanut Goes for the Gold by Jonthan Van Ness and Brontorina by James Howe. Dare to dream with them and join in on their journeys to fulfillment! We’ll also sing some songs and create a vision board full of the dreams we want to achieve! Don’t forget to bring an object that represents your dream and share it with us!

Thursday, February 22nd, at 4pm ET

Please note that this workshop will be recorded via Zoom and available on Facebook Live for 24 hours.
