Another great opportunity for learning with literature is at Imagination Stage this fall. Judith Viorst’s book, Lulu and the Brontosaurus (she also wrote Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day series) has been turned into a musical. And you could win four tickets to see the show!
Lulu and the Brontosaurus is the story of a feisty young girl who wants nothing but a brontosaurus for her birthday. When Mom and Dad draw the line at the impracticality of a pet dinosaur, Lulu sets off into the forest to find the large reptile all by herself. When she meets Mr. B, it’s clear that this brontosaurus is not interested in being her pet—he wants Lulu to be his pet instead! She has certainly met her match, and nothing turns out quite the way she expects.
Pair your trip to the show with fun learning activities. Here are some ideas:
- Learning activities about dinosaurs for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
- Make a pair of dinosaur feet to stomp in.
Lulu and the Brontosaurus runs in Imagination Stage’s Annette M. and Theodore N. Lerner Family Theatre September 25 through October 27. Best for ages 4-9, tickets start at $12, and may be purchased online at www.imaginationstage.org, at the Imagination Stage box office, or via phone at 301-280-1660, beginning August 12. Group rates are available.
