Storytime on the Carpet in November
November 9, 2017 @ 11:00 am – 11:45 am
Storytime is a FREE activity for Preschool and Elementary school age children. Once a month we put the rugs on the floor to lounge on while listening to a storybook.
We would love to have you and your children join us on our durable rugs. Reading and a craft (with glue and all sorts of fun messy things) is all done in the rug room near (and even on) the rugs.
No Monkeys, No Chocolate
By Melissa Stewart, Allen M. Young
Most kids love chocolate, but few of them know that its main ingredient, the cocoa bean, comes from a tree that grows in tropical rain forests. Dual-layer text describes the life cycle of the tree, emphasizing its botanical structures and highlighting the interdependence of the plant and animals such as the pollen-sucking midge, brain-eating coffin fly, and aphid-munching anole lizard.
The reading will be followed by a craft activity. Storytime participants will also receive a special coupon for the Café following the day’s storytime. RSVP below to reserve one of 25 spots on the rug and at the crafts table.
