INTERVALE — The Believe in Books Literacy Foundation continues its Character Breakfast series with Clifford the Big Red Dog on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 9:30 a.m. at the Theater in the Wood in Intervale. The series runs Saturday mornings from Sept. 22 through Oct. 20.
Each week a guest reader will read storybook character stories to the families in attendance. After the reading, a larger-than-life storybook character will be available for children to meet and greet with a hug or a high five; bringing a camera is recommended.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a gently used book for the weekly book swap. A continental breakfast is available prior to the reading. The character breakfasts are an exceptional way for families to spend a Saturday morning together. The cost is $5 per person, children 3 and under are free.
Following the reading each week, a local business or organization will be on hand to engage the kids in an interactive activity. Following the program, guests are encouraged to explore the Storybook Trail that will feature a story that corresponds with the storybook character of the week. Access to the Storybook Trail is included in the cost of the character breakfast.
