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 Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library in advance at (317) 839-6602.
October’s story is “In a Nutshell” by Joseph Anthony.
Here, in luminous illustrations, is the life cycle of an oak — and how it supports life even after it’s gone. An acorn drops from a great oak and grows. Animals nibble at it, a fire threatens it, but overcoming many challenges it eventually towers high in the forest, observing the changing human scene below. Eventually its energy passes into many other life forms — even the cherry pie enjoyed by the boy in the house below.
