Grab your favorite stuffed animal and join author Jan Zauzmer and a special guest for a reading of her new book: "When You Go with your Goat to Vote" (Click here to order your own copy!)! https://theexperimentpublishing.com/catalogs/fall-2020/if-you-go-with-your-goat-to-vote/
To enhance your fun bring one or more stuffed animals to the party, especially animals that appear in the book (goat, duck, bunny, platypus, turtle, kangaroo, goose, octopus, frog, pig, peacock, porcupine, and owl)
We suggest having a snack on hand. Other than chewing over the ballot, kids can snack on a rabbit tray (veggies & carrots) in honor of the bunny who hops to the polls. See if your child can find which animal enjoys the gummy worms and have some for them to eat!
