We are very excited to welcome Anna Prokos, author of The Lucky Cake, to Woodloch this weekend! Anna will be doing a book signing this Saturday, December 10th at 2 PM and a book reading this Sunday, December 11th at 11 AM. The book features a special holiday story that the whole family will enjoy:
Children around the world celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, but kids with a Greek background anxiously wait for New Year's Day. At the stroke of midnight, Greek families cut a traditional cake that's sweet and delicious. But this holiday cake is no ordinary confection. It holds a special golden coin surprise that's said to bring a year of good luck to the person who finds it. Now, families can start their own exciting New Year tradition to bring good luck to those they love!
The Lucky Cake is a heart-warming story about a boy named Billy who thinks he will never be lucky. But as he learns about the legend behind this holiday tradition, Billy realizes how fortunate he already is! The book includes the author's family recipe, so children and adults can bake together and begin a tradition that will delight familiy members year after year!
In addition to the reading and signing, Anna will have samples of the cake for guests to try and coloring pages so that children can design their own lucky coin!
Anna is also hosting contests in which guests can participate. For children, the contest involves writing a short 100-word story about an adventure Billy takes with his lucky coin. Please click here for contest details.
For parents, there will be a raffle giveaway. Parents can purchase the book and immediately be entered for a chance to win The Lucky Cake prize pack which includes: The Lucky Cake book, a cake mix, a Billy plush doll, a lucky golden coin, and a copy of "The Lucky Year," to be released in April 2012.
This is a great weekend to join us here at Woodloch for an all-inclusive family vacation! Please visit our website for more information, or call 1-800-Woodloch to book!

If you look back far enough, I'm sure that everyone can remember a childhood story that had an influence on their life. Whether it was a simple story that taught you how to read, or a tale that shaped your dreams, children's books and stories are an important and wonderful part of our lives.
During the weekend of April 13th to 15th 2012, Woodloch is proud to welcome back famous author Laura Numeroff. Her works include If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Pig a Pancake, and her newest addition, If You Give a Dog a Donut. Her stories and characters have become beloved staples at both home and in the classroom for more than 25 years. She has won several awards and has even been honored at the White House.
This weekend will include many special events. How would your children like to make their own storybook with Laura's workshop? We will also have our house artist on premise for guidance on illustrations. Or for those who love hearing the stories, Laura will have both a reading and signing of her newest book! As always, you can also expect one of Woodloch's traditional children's parties andarts and crafts, complete with those tasty snacks on which Ms. Numeroff's stories are based!
