Multcolib My Librarian Darcee: Enchanted Forest: Companion reads
Annotation:While I'm saddened that the Enchanted Forest's Humpty took a fall, it's a perfect opportunity to renew your child's interest in this classic. Seldom does the opportunity arise to tell your child that Humpty Dumpty really took a fall- in REAL life!
Annotation:I adore Paul Galdone's 70s versions of classic folk tales and this one is no exception. Not entirely cleaned up : Two pigs get eaten and the wolf is boiled in a tasty stew before we get to 'happily ever after.'
Annotation:Does claustrophobia and age prevent you from crawling through the rabbit hole? No worries- Wonderland awaits you in this Disney classic.
Annotation:You'll need Collodi's story to explain to you child just what is happening in the Enchanted Forest's beautifully odd diorama of 'a piece of wood with a mind of its own.'
Annotation:A retelling of the well-known tale in which two children lost in the woods find their way home despite an encounter with a wicked witch who wants to eat them- with beautiful illustrations by the amazing Jen Corace.
Annotation:You'll have to swing by your library to view the family history of the development of Oregon's Enchanted Forest theme park with colored photos. It shows the struggle of a young family and one man's dream and how to do it on a shoe string. From a undeveloped land, no savings and little income, this dream became Oregon's oldest family owned theme park.

Visiting the Enchanted Forest has been an Oregonian family tradition since the 1970s. Now that Humpty Dumpty is being put back together again, you're going to want to plan your next visit. Why not take the opportunity to read up on some of the characters you'll encounter on Storybook Lane?
