While adults revel in snagging sambusas and kombucha at Capital City Public Market on Saturdays, sometimes little tikes can't be satiated with all the fresh veggies in the world. Conveniently, Rediscovered Books on Eighth Street has a plan to feed and entertain children with its Breakfast with Books program.
Each child receives breakfast provided by Brick Oven Bistro, engages in a craft-making activity to make something to take home, listens to a story read by bookseller Jamie Schildknecht and nabs a coupon good toward 25 percent off a children's book.
The second event of the series begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 21, with the theme Fractured Fairy Tales. Schildknecht plans to pick three stories that retell classic fairy tales, such as the Three Little Pigs and their plan to frame the Big Bad Wolf. He suggests an age range of 4-8 years old.
This month, the book store is capping registration somewhere between 12 and 15 children, with advance tickets available on its website, and lowering the cost to $5 plus a 5 percent discount on a book.
The series will continue Saturday, Aug. 25, when Rediscovered will feature Terribly Terrific Tongue-Twisters, which are sure to put Schildknecht's reading skills to the test.
