Just for Kids: "Hungry Caterpillar" Carnival

May 07, 2012

The Junior League of Bristol is hosting its annual Caterpillar Carnival in downtown Bristol on May 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. This free event will include a downtown crawl, crafts, games, a bouncy house, cookies, free books, and a visit by KC the Caterpillar. For more information please call the Bristol Public Library at (276) 645-8780.

Literacy awareness is a major project of the Junior League of Bristol (JLB). The club recently presented original art by author Eric Carle to the children's section of the Bristol Public Library. A hand-signed print by Carle will hang in the children's library, as well as some original pieces of tissue paper, used to create the collage art that adorns the author's book covers such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See and The Grouchy Ladybug.
