Want to see something cool? … I can make that quarter vanish… All it takes is a little magic... Fourth grade was supposed to be a fresh start, but Mike's already back in the principal's office. He's not a bad kid. He just can't sit still. And now, his parents won't let him play soccer anymore; instead he has to hang out with his new neighbor Nora, who is good at everything. Then, Mike and Nora discover the White Rabbit. It's an odd shop--with a special secret inside. Its owner, Mr. Zerlin, is a magician, and, amazingly, he believes Mike could be a magician, too. Has Mike finally found something he's good at? This is a parent/guardian & child book group for children in 2nd & 3rd grade. This program requires registration. Please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1404.
