Storytime: There’s Nothing to Do!

Sat, Nov 11, 2017 from 10:30 am - 11:00 am PST
1119 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

In the next book in the I Don’t Want to be a Frog series, young Frog learns an unexpected lesson about how NOT to be bored.
Frog is bored. He can’t find ANYTHING to do—even when his animal friends make good suggestions, like sleeping all day, licking between his toes, or hopping around and then staring off into space. Will he find a fun and exciting way to spend his day? Featuring the beloved characters from I Don’t Want to Be a Frog and I Don’t Want to Be Big, this new story is sure to bring a smile to every kid who’s ever said “There’s nothing to do!”

Wordstock admission is FREE for attendees 17 years of age and younger.
