The Fondy High Key Clubbers spent their Saturday afternoon corralling and entertaining hundreds of young people at their annual Storybook Land event. The event is geared to encourage reading in young people by bringing books to life through the acting and antics of the Fondy High Key Club members. Children of all ages (including parents) enjoy the carefree excitement of the Key Clubbers in their presentation of several classic storybooks. This year the group presented Snow White, Peter Pan, The Cat in the Hat, Beauty and the Beast, and a sing-a-long of “Old MacDonald.”
After touring through the different storybook lands, each child is given the opportunity to choose a book of their own to take home and read or have read to them. Through the generosity of the Key Club and their sponsors, children had the choice of many different age appropriate reading materials, from Sesame Street babies books to Flat Stanley, several historical and scientific learning books, and even The Babysitter’s Club. Young people were thrilled with the event and left with a renewed excitement toward the adventures of reading. Good job, Key Clubbers!
