Animal Tales: Henry the Impatient Heron

June 4, 2019 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Clayton Public Library
5199 Iowa Street

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.

June’s story is “Henry the Impatient Heron” by Donna Love.

Henry the Heron couldn’t stand still! He was always moving, and it drove everyone crazy! His brother and sister yelled at him for stepping on their heads, and Mom and Dad could barely get food into his little baby mouth. But herons must stand still to catch their food, so how would Henry ever be able to eat on his own? Henry learns a valuable lesson from the King of Camouflage! Filled with hilarious and lighthearted illustrations to enhance the meaningful lesson on the importance of just being still for both herons and kids alike.
