Summer At the Reptile, June and July

At the Reading Reptile with Grandma KarenReading Reptile is a funky little children’s bookshop over in Brookside. We discovered via coffee-shop-flyer that they are offering a series of art workshops this summer for elementary-aged children. Unfortunately, they haven’t updated their website in a couple of months, so you’ll need to call or email to confirm times and costs. Phone number is (816) 753-0441 and email address is
