IN AVONDALE PARK IN SEPTEMBER

StoryWalk - "Down by the Cool of the Pool"

Avondale Library is hosting a StoryWalk in Avondale Park September 1–30 featuring the book Down by the Cool of the Pool by Tony Mitton.

Participants walk along a trail, seeing signs that have pages from the book that they can read while walking down the sidewalk.

The goals of Avondale Library’s September StoryWalk, according to storyteller Mrs. Eve:
-To connect the library with the public through an interactive -literacy experience by providing a directed park activity.
-To promote early literacy skills such as letter recognition, numeracy, print awareness, vocabulary.
-To promote health through walking and physical challenges.
-To promote reading as a family experience.
-To promote critical thinking skills and discussion with open ended questions.

Get the whole family in the kitchen to learn and enjoy pizza making. Viewers will be able to follow a step-by-step presentation. Simple breads for the dough, types of sauces, and many toppings will be shared. Get your chef hat and spatula ready!

Kid- Friendly Pizza Recipe: Using pre-baked breads for crust. Flatbread, Naan bread, or Pita bread.

Ingredients

· 1-2 Baked breads of choice
· 1 jar pasta sauce
· mozzarella cheese
· garlic butter (optional)
· your favorite pizza toppings (peppers, onion, mushrooms, olives, meat)

Instructions

1. Preheat the conventional oven to 375 degrees. You can also use a toaster oven or Air fryer. Place the flatbread on a baking sheet. This would be the time to lightly spread the garlic butter on your bread, add a few tablespoons of tomato sauce and spread it over the top of the flatbread with the back of a spoon. Top with cheese. Add your favorite toppings. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and starting to bubble.

Note: Be careful pizza will be hot!
