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 Avon-Washington Township Public Library in advance at (317) 272-4818.
November’s story is “Raccoon on His Own” by Jim Arnosky.
When a baby raccoon is swept downstream in an abandoned canoe, he feels afraid. But soon he notices all kinds of things he has never seen before, and from the safety of his little boat, he begins to explore the world around him. Paralleling the exciting — and often frightening — experience of a child’s first adventure away from home, Raccoon on His Own offers little ones a glimpse of being on their own for the very first time.
