Join us on April 18th @ 1:30 when wildlife rehabilitator Sarah Austin will be here to talk about her work. She’ll be bringing a live owl and red-tail hawk with her. This event is brought to you by Beavers, Wetlands and Wildlife.
This Tuesday, at Growing Readers story time, we continued our lessons on animals. We’ve talked about pets in general, dogs, fish, rabbits, and this week, our theme was cats.
Our favorite feline friend, Pete the Cat, was back with his magic sunglasses. Pete the Cat woke up feeling grumpy, but his magic sunglasses help him discover the good mood and happy feelings that have been tucked deep inside him all along. In this book, Pete the Cat runs into several friends who are sad, mad, and blue. He helps change their mood with his magic sunglasses. His positive outlook transforms even the worst days into sunshiny goodness.
- If You’re A Pet and You Know It
- Can You? (hope like a rabbit, jump like frog, etc.)
- Sticky, Sticky Bubblegum
We worked on our numbers…
Down Around the Corner
Down around the corner at my mom’s pet shop,
Were 5 [little] kittens with a bow on top.
Along came someone with a nickel to pay,
And they bought a [little] kitten and they took it away.
(For each verse we took down one of our kittens and replaced it with a nickel. We then counted kittens and nickels as a group.)
The kids made their own magic sunglasses, so they can put them on anytime they are feeling blue.
Join us next week for Growing Readers story time!
