Storytime: Boo Who?

Sat, Nov 11, 2017 from 9:50 am - 10:20 am PST
1119 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

A shy little ghost who’s new to the group has trouble fitting in — until his special talent comes to the fore.

Boo is new. And even if the other kids are welcoming, it can be scary being new, especially for a shy ghost who can’t play any of their games. (“You tagged me? Oh, sorry. I couldn’t feel it.”) Can Boo find a way to fit in and make friends with the rest of the group? From the creator of Rex Wrecks It! comes a funny story about feeling invisible — and finding a way to be seen and appreciated for who you are.

Wordstock admission is FREE for attendees 17 and younger!
