Lynn Cultural CouncilSewing REAL PuppetsThe book Where the Wild Things Are is a psychological parable about a child dealing with challenges of being in a world run by adults, learning that his anger can be safely expressed and conquered. The project “Sewing REAL Puppets” provided opportunities for participants to process this together through weekly readings of the book and making puppets. This project benefited the afterschool REAL student participants, parents, and visitors.

The mission is to improve literacy. Many people say that is not possible and perhaps we should try for a more tangible mission for The REAL Program. You can help us on our more tangible mission by liking and sharing us on FACEBOOK. Our Facebook address is real_lynn as our first community to improve literacy is based in Lynn, MA where there are nearly 100,000 people and only one public library; no book stores and a majority of the public elementary schools (last count is 22) do not have school libraries as they need the room for classrooms in their elegant but dated buildings. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
