"Reflections..."

There are mirrors to reflect in and faces to create as children explore emotions in English, Spanish and American Sign Language in the "Face It" space. Based on some literary favorites, the room is home to three large, wooden sculptures: a Frog and Toad Are Friends frog, a Blueberries for Sal bear, and a Caps for Sale tree full of monkeys. The children can read books about their favorite animal and then become a frog, bear or monkey with props and costumes. A stage invites budding actors and actresses to act out the part. Jumping spotlights set the kids into joyful motion.
