Story Time: Screen Free Week Kickoff!
Greenlight Bookstore, Saturday, May 3 at 11am
Saturday, May 3, 11:00 AM Story Time: Screen Free Week Kickoff!

Screen Free Week (May 5 – 11) is an international celebration where children, families, schools, and communities spend seven days turning OFF entertainment screen media and turning ON life! It’s a time to unplug and play, daydream, create, explore nature, spend time with family and friends – and of course, read! We’re celebrating with a story time featuring some of our favorite books about the screen free life, including Dan Yaccarino’s Doug Unplugged, about a robot boy who discovers what’s beyond the data feed, and Lane Smith’s It’s a Book, in which a monkey teaches a donkey about this strange bit of non-electronic technology. We’ll also be handing out Screen Free cards, which kids can fill in with their screen-free activities during the week – bring them back completed after May 11 for a $5 Greenlight gift card! Ages 3 to 8.

Location: Street: 686 Fulton Street City: Brooklyn, Province: New York Postal Code: 11217 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)
