July 12, 2022—Author Rachel Terlop joined Fredericksburg Parent and Family Magazine and Possum-bilities for an extra special storytime on July 11 at Possum-bilities’s downtown location. Terlop is the author of Maggie the Moomaid, a fantastic story about a young manatee who loves to play dress-up. The book includes body-positivity messages sure to inspire any young “manatees” to embrace their bodies and be themselves. Maggie the Moomaid can be purchased at Maggie the Moomaid.
Terlop read Maggie the Moomaid aloud to a room full of children, engaging her audience with fun voices, a read-along activity, and charming interactions with the kids. Possum-bilities’s own live possum, Sweet Pea, even joined the fun, dressing up in her own moomaid costume and listening to the story. The event concluded with a moomaid craft provided by FredParent, and many children met Terlop or purchased her book.
Possums for Reading’s free Storytime takes place on the second Monday of every month at 211 William St 2nd Floor (above the sweet shop). It begins at 10 a.m. and includes books, crafts and live possums. We can’t wait to see you there!
