Join Ms. Keidra Hooks and Mr. Rex McAllister of Mississippi Public Broadcasting as they read Sammy the Seal by Syd Hoof. Sammy the Seal is a fun book about a seal who lives in a zoo, and he wants to see what’s outside the zoo. Mr. Johnson, the zookeeper, lets Sammy the Seal out of his cage (what?!) so he can explore the city. He wanders the streets and observes people, jumps into a man’s bathtub, and eventually ends up in an elementary school classroom.
After the story, children and adults will then join in for some interactive ocean activities. There will be brown bag puppets of seals, hippos, and elephants for the kids to make and take home and enjoy. Prizes will be awarded!
