Pet Pals

MASHUP: Pet Pal Open Face Sandwiches 

This delicious treat is part art project and part recipe, and all you need is a slice of bread and any fixins’ you can find around the house.

GUEST: Jamie Katz, Pet Detective 

Yup, pet detectives are really a thing, and Jamie Katz (her REAL name!) is one of the best as Kenny and Jill (aka Page Turner) found out first hand when Jamie helped them find their lost cat, Philo. Jamie will introduce us to her sniffer dogs, Gable and Fletcher and show kids how she trains them to help find lost pets. 


A live action/animated show about a wacky librarian, a magic book and, of course, lots of animals. Based on the book SUCH A LIBRARY! By Jill Ross Nadler (aka Page Turner). 

CRAFT: Pet Pop Up Books 

With an old file folder and a pair of scissors, kids can create their own magical pop up books!
