Rated PG; 112 minutes

Disney’s "Muppets Most Wanted" takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.

Kids can read out loud to Tracy or Tanzy, registered therapy dogs. It's a great way to practice reading, develop reading fluency and have fun with a warm, furry friend.

Come to the library and sign up for a reading time (sorry - no advance registrations).

Choose a book or bring one from home.

My child loved this fun, rhyming book so much at age 3 he would recite it aloud! Also available as a DVD book (Scholastic) coupled with "Chicka Boom Boom" and other fun stories. Try Sierra's other books too!
