About this Event

The story

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert O'Brien (1970) | Mrs. Frisby, a widowed mouse with four small children, must move her family to their summer quarters immediately, or face almost certain death. But her youngest son, Timothy, is too sick to be moved. Her courageous act of kindness to a crow leads to her collaboration with creatures who save the day: the highly intelligent rats of NIMH. These extraordinary creatures have learned to read, and that has changed everything for them. They help solve Mrs. Frisby's problem--and in turn, she does them a great service. An inspiring story of teamwork, selflessness, and the value of READING!

The workshop

A few weeks before our workshop, we'll send your child a LitWits Kit of supplies. (See what that looks like here. Note that our supplies always include a story-related snack, but we'll let you know what that is ahead of time, so you can replace as necessary.)

The kit includes the book, which should be read or listened to before the workshop. It's fine to use your own heavily abridged and/or audio version instead--whatever makes the book more enjoyable for your child.

In the workshop, we'll spend three sensory, creative hours doing what the characters and author did, and learning all kinds of valuable lessons from them! (Learn more about our experiential workshops here.)

Kids have a blast opening their LitWits Kits in class, removing each item step by step in a “slow reveal,” as we talk, work, and play our way through the story’s narrative arc.

Date: Wednesday, May 26, 2021 (AM and PM sessions are for different ages) - Registration closes April 26

Ages: The morning session (9a-12p PST) is for ages 7+; the afternoon session (1-4p PST) is for ages 10+. Older kids are welcome to attend the younger session, but not the other way around. Learn how the content differs here, under "Details."

Cost: The cost for the first child is $65; the price for each additional sibling is $50. Prices include a LitWits Kit of supplies. LitWits is an approved vendor for Ocean Grove Charter School: use promo code CHARTER on the ticket page to register without prepaying.

Cancellation policy: We can offer refunds only for orders cancelled 30 days prior to the workshop; by then we've already bought (and possibly already shipped) nonreturnable supplies. Unfortunately, we can't offer makeups.
