LIVE! From Your Favorite Children’s Books


Your favorite children’s books come to life at a very special event hosted by the Jefferson DeFrees Family Center in Warren, PA. Moms, Dads, Grands and children of all ages are going to have the time of their lives at the Storybook Breakfast being held Saturday, January 25th.

Meet, greet and dine with Disney princesses, comic book superheroes, Willy Wonka, Mary Poppins and Bert and more! Everyone’s favorite firefighting pup Marshall will be making an appearance. Crazy cool Pete the Cat will be showing up too. Who knows what he’ll be up to!

Breakfast times are 9:00 and 11:00 am with both seatings lasting approximately one hour. During that hour families and friends will be treated to a delicious breakfast and have a chance to mingle with the storybook characters. Photo-ops galore! Each table will be decorated with each particular storybook’s theme. Every child in attendance will receive a good bag to take home. Take a chance on winning the basket raffle!

Proceeds from the event will benefit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Warren County. Imagination Library is a literacy program for children from birth to the month of their 5th birthday. Children registered in Warren County receive one FREE book each month. These age appropriate and award winning books are mailed directly to the child’s home.

“With the help of the Dollywood Foundation and many generous members of our community we are able to offer this amazing early literacy program to the families of Warren County,” says Local Program Coordinator Jennifer Madigan.

“We are grateful for sponsorships and support from Warren, Pediatrics, Kiwanis Club of Warren, Warren Public Library and Coffaro’s Custom Butchering.” said Jennifer. The Youth Connection and the Enchanted Fairy Tale Troupe will be providing many of the characters.

Tickets for the Storybook Breakfast are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Expecting a great turn out Jennifer commented, “Presale tickets are strongly encouraged.” Tickets can be purchased at the Jefferson DeFrees Family Center Monday- Friday between 8:30am and 5:00pm.
