Story Hour: Unusual Animals (ages 3–5) [VIRTUAL; RSVP REQUIRED]
10 March 2021 @ 14 h 30 min - 15 h 30 min
For ages 3–5
3–5 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for our weekly interactive Wednesday Story Hour! This virtual program lasts 45 minutes and features songs, stories and hand rhymes in English, and is hosted by our children’s librarians and volunteers.
For this Story Hour, we’ll be reading stories about unusual animals, including Inky’s Amazing Escape: How a Very Smart Octopus Found His Way Home, by Sy Montgomery, illustrated by Amy Schimler-Safford, based on a true story of an octopus who escaped from an aquarium in New Zealand. Participants will be asked to tell the group the name of their favorite animal during this session.
This Story Hour will be hosted by Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager Celeste and volunteer Mary Wessels, who will read books and lead you and your little one in stories during an interactive, live, virtual session. This participatory program is intended to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Plan to join in, sing along, and move around, as you would do in one of our in-person events. If you join in this virtual session, it will be as important as ever to model movement and song for your little one.
