Would you like to introduce your preschooler to the Gold Rush, mining, ranching, pioneer life and California history? Come join us for story time at the Angels Camp Museum!
The Great Pumpkin Switch
Story by Megan McDonald and illustrated by Ted Lewin
“I looked, but I couldn’t believe what I saw. Rosie’s pumpkin, bouncing down the front steps, thwump, thwump, thwump. All 34 of them. Then, splat!”
Grampa tells a story about a time when horse-drawn carts were just beginning to give way to automobiles, when a neighbor’s backyard held a hungry pig, and when boys could as easily be called upon to stir a simmering pot of apple butter as to clean up a fallen tree.
Art Activity: Make your own penny pumpkin, roll like a pumpkin and take a seed home to grow.
Program will be held in the Museum’s Carriage House
