Description

An annual event in every elementary-school classroom is the taking of the group portrait. Here, the “kids” are made up of buttons and bits of string, cardboard, feathers, grommets, and such, and are a pretty disheveled lot before Glue (late; “stuck in traffic”) arrives to sort everyone out and settle everything down. An imaginative invitation to seeing, to creative crafts, to story-hour performance.
