Statesboro-based Imaginative Journeys, creator of entertaining and educational children’s programs, presented its “Could YOU Be A World War II Kid?” at the Newnan Carnegie Library, in Newnan, Ga., recently, for an enthusiastic group of nearly thirty local kids, ages 8-12.
The program was sponsored by the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation, with special funding from the Edgar B. Hollis Testamentary Trust.
Children pretended to be wartime evacuees from London, and experienced an air raid, shopping and living in a British home in 1940, with the use of sound effects, artifacts, images and roleplay.
Lauren Jones of the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation Board said of the program, “Our front desk has received rave reviews from the parents, and, as you know, that reflects the children’s feedback. It was an unforgettable experience for the children.”
Imaginative Journeys, founded by former GSU history professor Dr. Annette Laing, offers summer camps locally in Statesboro, and traveling programs throughout the state. For more information, go to Imaginative
