|Welcome to the World of Fairy Tales!|
Stories jump off the pages
When we read a good book, we feel like the story jumps off the page. Through March 26, 2016, seven fairy tales literally jump off the page at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. Cinderella, Jack and the Bean Stalk, Anansi and the Talking Melon, Lon Po Po, Thumbelina, Beauty and the Beast and The Shoemaker and the Elves inspire children to engage in the world of books not only through reading but also hands-on experiences.

Interactive story experiences
Each story unfolds in a diorama with places for kids to climb, crawl and play. Pick up Cinderella's buckets, serve Beauty's tarts, climb Jack's beanstalk, hide in Anansi's melon, save the children from the wolf in Lon Po Po, peek into the world of Thumbelina and cobble the Shoemaker's shoes! Each story has multiple interactive components that will have children connecting with each tale in tangible ways.
