Author Cheryl Pilgrim Visits The Woodlands Children’s Museum
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Children can delight in the adventures of two adorable dogs named Big and Little when children’s author Cheryl Pilgrim reads to visitors at The Woodlands Children’s Museum Friday, August 23.
Pilgrim’s book, Big and Little: A Story of Opposites, introduces little ones to the concept of opposites through a charming story, beautiful artwork and a few surprises, including an unexpected run-in with a cranky bear.
The reading will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will be followed by a meet-and-greet, when Pilgrim will sign and sell copies of her hardcover book ($13 including tax) until 12:30 p.m.
All activities will take place at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, Suite 280, The Woodlands, TX 77381.
“There’s something very endearing about the dogs in Cheryl’s book, and her illustrations are so expressive,” Executive Director Angela Colton said. “Children won’t even notice that they’re learning as they lose themselves in Big and Little’s story.”
In addition to her work as a writer and illustrator, Pilgrim is a public school art teacher. She has two grown children and a menagerie of rescue dogs and cats.
Pilgrim’s visit is included in the museum’s regular $7 admission price for visitors age 1 and older. The Woodlands Children’s Museum is recommended for ages 7 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
The Woodlands Children’s Museum, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded out of a desire to meet the community’s proven need for a positive environment where children and their families can learn, play, and make special memories throughout the year. At the museum, fun and learning go hand in hand, whether children are creating art, singing along to a musical performance, or conducting a science experiment. The museum also has made it a priority to bring children multi-ethnic and multicultural experiences that celebrate cultural and global differences and strengthen common bonds. Programs frequently are delivered in partnership with other nonprofit organizations, always with the goal of making a positive difference in the life of a child.
