July 31 – "Ninjas, Cowboys, and MORE BEARS!" – Chris D’Orso and Emily Clasper, Service Leaders
There’s more to children’s literature than just “the classics”! Chris D’Orso and Emily Clasper look at the way some more recently published picture books reflect the UU principles they hope to instill in their own children. Come ready to read, play, and shout along as they share a world of talking pigs, selfish archdukes, and bears on unicycles… all coming together to help teach our kids what it means to live by our principles.
