King for the Day!

Our grandson is turning 7 and recently went on a road trip to a fabulous place for children and parents. It's a magical community center where families can browse for books and hear live storytelling, music arts and crafts. For those that live on the east coast, have you been there before? Oh, let me share a little bit about the place with you.
