Our Park Naturalists come to your local library each month to share a story about a native animal and a related craft or activity with preschool through upper elementary age children. This program is FREE to attend.
***NEW!*** Beginning in September, 2018, we have new schedules for most libraries, AND we’ve added the Monrovia branch of the Morgan County Public Library to our schedule! Be sure to double-check the schedule of your favorite public library in September and beyond so that you don’t miss out on Animal Tales!
***NEW!*** Beginning in September, 2018, advance registration is required for most public libraries. Reserve your spot at this program by calling the Danville-Center Township Public Library in advance at (317) 745-2604.
December’s story is The Animals’ Winter Sleep by Lynda Graham-Barber.
Taking nonfiction into the realm of bedtime read-to-me stories, this rich, melodic text paired with detailed color pencil illustrations describes how 13 North American species — such as black bear, ermine, pileated woodpecker, porcupine, river otter, and ruffed grouse — survive harsh winter snows snug inside their dens, nests, burrows, and lodges.
