April 15: Earth Day Every Day!

Join us for our Earth Day Celebration! We will learn about the different things that Earth Day helps us to remember: specifically, the importance of preserving our rainforests and how plants grow/why we need them.

We will read Eric Carle's exciting book The Tiny Seed, among others.

And we will plant our very own seeds to take home so we can watch them grow! There will be fun, messy dirt!

April 8 Theme: Ox-Cart Man

He packed a bag of wool
he sheared from sheep in April.
He packed a shawl his wife wove on a loom
from yarn spun at the spinning wheel
from sheep sheared in April
He packed five pairs of mittens
his daughter knit from yarn spun at the spinning wheel
from sheep sheared in April.
This beautiful passage is from Donald Hall's Caldicott Medal winner, Ox-Cart Man. I am very excited to share this story with our Story Time kids, as it is probably my very favorite picture book of all time! If I had to pick one book that makes me weepy from the beauty of it all every time I pick it up, it would be this one (but I'll try my best to contain myself on Wednesday).
And as we're reading a very special book, we'll have a very special craft to go with it: we'll be making our own Ox-Carts! Also, we're going to have a special Spring-Time treat to celebrate the upcoming holidays!
Join us.
