Once Upon a Reader comes to Albert Lea

Published 9:56 am Friday, June 10, 2016

Author and illustrator Derek Anderson will perform his “Ten Pigs Trunk Show” at 2 p.m. June 21 at the Albert Lea Public Library.

During this portable one-man show, the author will read the book aloud, lead a reenactment, sketch, sing and more.

According to a press release, the program is aimed at pre-K children and their families and promotes Minnesota children’s literature and encourages families to talk, sing, read, write and play together — five practices critical to early literacy skills development.
