Architecture according to pigeons

Curious Georges apartment building

Imaginations were hard at work at Sunnyside Branch this Thursday with our Beyond Blocks program. Henry really wowed us with his apartment building for Curious George featuring two pigeons, one named Compass and the other Compass's friend. Huxley the dog was busy rolling around on roller skates and of course the Man with the Yellow Hat was there as well.
