Looking for scenes from your favorite books?  Look no further than Booktown on our second floor!

Walk through a village where every doorway leads you into the pages of a Maine children's literary classic.

Put on a show in our puppet theatre or meet new friends inside Hattie's Lighthouse.

Our youngest friends enjoy the toddler sized toy house, three bears sitting on chairs, and, of course, the cow jumping over the moon in our Goodnight Moon room.

Be a librarian in the Miss Rumphius Library and explore sign language on our library computer.  Or read from any of our classic children's books on the library's comfy sofa.

Steer through the surf in the Tidely-Idley, from "Burt Dow, Deep-water Man" by Robert McCloskey.  Plant some vegetables at Zuckerman's Barn or have your picture ta ken atop Wilbur the pig from "Charlotte's Web."


You can even create your own stop-motion movie with farm animals!
