NORTHBRIDGE, Mass. – What would you do if you woke up one morning to find it raining marshmallows?
That’s a question about 30 children and their caregivers contemplated Monday morning at the Whitin Community Center when Christine Dumais, curriculum director of Blackstone Valley Children’s Place, read them the book “Marshmallows Galore.’’
The book was written by her friend, Donna Mae of Douglas, and illustrated by Brandon Fall.
Dumais read the book for the Read Around The Town summer reading program sponsored by the Northbridge School District and Whitinsville Social Library.
Children are invited to tour several Northbridge locations this summer and have a book read to them while there.
Following the story, some of the children at the Community Center were given the choice of swimming in the center’s pool or playing in its playground.
Children are invited to UniBank next Monday at 10 a.m. Click here for a full schedule of Read Around The Town Events.
