I will admit, I set the bar low as our two little guys and I headed to the Putnam Museum to see “The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig” for Story Time on the GIANT Screen. My kids might not behave in the big theater…the book might not be that good as a movie..the “fun activity” might be too advanced or not advanced enough.
