It’s hard to be Velma, the littlest Gratch, entering the first grade. That’s because everyone has marvelous memories of her two older sisters, who were practically perfect first graders. Poor Velma — people can barely remember her name. But all that changes on a class trip to the magnificent Butterfly Conservatory — a place neither of her sisters has ever been. When a monarch roosts on Velma’s finger and won’t budge for days…well, no one will forget Velma ever again.

Join Miss Louisa on one or both days as she reads Velma’s story. You will tour the Tyler Butterfly House too. Wear your wings if you like, and bring a blanket to sit on. All children must be accompanied by an adult; a maximum of two children per adult, please.

Member child with accompanying adult: $8; Additional Member child: $8

Non-member child with accompanying adult: $16; Additional non-member child: $10
