Today was our first Jamboree-by-the-Sea at Manchester Historical Museum and it was a hands on experience! Eric Carle was the featured author and Kate Stadt, the Children's Librarian at Manchester Public Library, brought over a huge stack of books. We had story time, sang songs, jammed out with instruments, and had a quiet time while rocking and listening to Beethoven. Then, we set out the stacks of books and everybody explored and read even more books together. At the end, children selected books to check out from the library and take home.
