Staff Pick: Aunt Flossie’s Hats (and Crab Cakes Later)

Aunt Flossie's Hats

Sara and Susan share tea, cookies, crab cakes, and stories about hats when they visit their favorite relative, Aunt Flossie.

Sarah and Susan enjoy spending time at their Aunt Flossie’s house.  It’s like a step back in history.  They like playing dress up in her fancy hats because her hats come with their own stories…and Aunt Flossie tells them these stories each time the girls try on a different hat.  Most of the stories are from a time before the girls were born, when she was a girl.  But one of the hats has a story the girls know and help tell.  It involves a lake, a boy, a dog and their dad’s very funny accident.
