The puppet cast of “The Little Red Hen” entertained a roomful of children at the Maricopa Library Monday morning. Puppeteer Nancy Smith of Great Arizona Puppet Theater performed every role in a one-woman show that included interactive song and movement with the kids.

The event is part of the library’s Summer Reading Program. Future library events can be found on InMaricopa’s calendar.

A presentation by Radical Reptile Fun featured a Burmese python, tortoise and an argus monitor lizard. Afterward, children lined up to pet the scaly animals. The event was part of the library’s Summer Reading Program.
