This past Saturday was the 17th Annual Rochester Children’s Book Festival. On Saturday, November 16 at the Monroe Community College, families were in for a magical day packed with activities, presentation and meeting those who write and illustrate books for children, tweens and teens. David Kalvitis, the creator of the Greatest Dot-to-Dot Books was among those authors.
The most creative part of the Festival happens in the Busy Bookworm Room. At each table in this crafting room children can create something special that goes along with one of the books on sale upstairs. This room is generally for younger children but this year we were invited to have a table and let the kids make a more involved Thanksgiving Day Dot-to-Dot Card.
We would like to thank the volunteers that helped us with the busyness of the day. They were extremely helpful and we are very grateful for their time.
If you missed the chance to make a card visit our Thanksgiving Card blog to find out how to make your own.
The imagination of the children that made cards was amazing! Even though we had example cards the kids came up with their own variations. We welcome you to enjoy the slide show of many of the cards that were made at our VERY BUSY crafting table.
