Pocket School

Hey, kids! Wanna play a game? Tell your mommy or daddy to drop you off at at the mall so we can have some fun together. I've got a very special game for us to play together, and I think you'll like it very much. I like to call it "Mrs. Pocket's Playtime." Now, watch carefully as I reach down in to my pocket and pull out something very silly! It's...a puppet! What did you expect, gutter-minded readers? Just because the title of this particular part of the Dallas Public Library's children's activity series sounds like something your sketchy uncle might come up with doesn't mean it's actually creepy. In fact, "Mrs. Pocket's Playtime" is a literacy-building story time featuring puppets, aimed at pre-schoolers. Because there's no place to learn like one of the biggest malls in Texas, "Playtime" is in the NorthCourt at North Park Center, 8687 N. Central Expressway, at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Call 214-363-7441
