Join Miss Kate for stories, fingerplays, songs and games.. Bring a blanket or try one our chairs. Story time will be held outside in back of the Children's Room when the weather permits. I will have craft kits for you to take home.

Story Walk

Another month, another StoryWalk.This month's book is "Farewell to Shady Glade" by Bill Peet. Bill Peet was an illustrator for Walt Disney Studios. He wrote and illustrated many books and this is a good one. It is too long for our StoryWalk signs so I started by the Library door. Start reading there and continue along the Children's Room and beyond. Read it and let me know if you like it too.
