Storytime: If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, Don’t.  
If your mom says to get ready to play at the beach, she means with a boat, or a Frisbee or a shovel. She is NOT talking about the piano. But Magnolia is a little girl with a big idea, determination and one very heavy upright piano she insists she needs to take with her. What’s the worst that can happen? Find out at Storytime.
