A local author and book illustrator, Tracey Cambell Pearson, did a children's program at our local community center today. She read a book she has recently illustrated (Guinea Pigs Add Up) and had several craft stations set up. I had volunteered to bring some apple cider and help set up. It ended up that I stayed to help out at one of the craft tables, too.
There was a spot for petting guinea pigs, guinea pig cookie decorating, guinea pig mask making, guinea pig crown making, pictures (of--you guessed it--guinea pigs) to color, face painting, and book signing, plus a raffle of books.
