Getting kids to love reading can sometimes be a challenge for parents. That is precisely the reason the Target Storybook Series, which holds performances at the Brooklyn College Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts, was created. The series aims to encourage strong reading skills by holding performances of classic books and also including a parents’ guide with activity sheets and discussion topics to go along with the performances.

The first performance in the series is The Velveteen Rabbit, the classic book by Margery Williams. The story is about a stuffed animal who wishes to become real. The dazzling production, adapted by Enchantment Theatre Company, features original musical score by Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning composer/arranger Don Sebesky, lyrics by Gloria Nissenson, and a book by Leslie Reidel, Jennifer Blatchley Smith, and Landis Smith.
