Flute Sweet: Catch Flute Sweet and Tickletoon in free performances at libraries all over the Bay Area this week, including a special show for kids ages 2-8 at Berkeley’s West Branch library at 6 p.m. April 29, and a songwriting workshop for teens at the Alameda library at 3 p.m. May 1.

OMCA Opening: Everyone’s buzzing about the grand opening of the newly renovated Oakland Museum of California and its 31-hour marathon party that starts with live music, an aerial dance and plenty of hoopla at 11 a.m. May 1 and runs all the way to dinner time May 2. But the really kid-friendly stuff is all on Sunday with face painting, family art projects and talks with the Koi Pond guy from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and gospel music, rap and drumming all afternoon. Free.

Los Kiddos: The Pleasanton Library joins the national El Dia de los Ninos literary celebration with an evening of Argentine folk tales and puppets, including a bilingual retelling of “The Armadillo’s Rancho,” at 7 p.m. April 30.

Good Grief: Linus, Lucy and the gang romp across the stage at San Ramon’s Front Row Theatre this weekend in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” by the Bay Area Children’s Theatre. Tickets: $14-$18.

Some Pig: Charlotte, Wilbur and Fern share the spotlight at Oakland’s Children’s Fairyland April 30-May 2 when the Oakland School for the Arts stages “Charlotte’s Web.” Tickets $7-$10.
