Books for Preschoolers on Wednesday, February 24

We got wild in storytime this morning with books about alligators and crocodiles.

Next Wednesday’s storytimes will be a little bit different as we celebrate the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss! March 2 has been named Read Across America Day in honor of his life and work, and we will be celebrating with silly stories and birthday cake.
