Just down the road in
Just down the road in Austin every year on the fourth weekend of April, the city puts on a party for everyone’s favorite forlorn friend, Eeyore, the delightfully depressed donkey from the Hundred Acre Wood.
Here in Oak Cliff, we will read his birthday story, Eeyore Has A Birthday, by A. A. Milne, and the true tale of how his famous friend Winnie-The-Pooh came to be, The True Story Of The World’s Most Famous Bear, written by Lindsay Mattick, the great-granddaughter of the real veterinarian who found the cub at a train station in Winnipeg on his way to WWI.
Afterwards, the children can try their hand at a vintage Eeyore puzzle and have fun playing pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey!
Lanie DeLay has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
It’ll be a 45 minute read followed by a short discussion with the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
All ages are welcome.
On Sunday morning bring your kids and infuse them with a love for reading.
