Calling All Mothers

Happy Birthday to the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Thank you to everyone who came for storytime during spring break this week! It was great to see you all and celebrate St. Patrick's Day with you.  Next week, we will be reading a story or two by Eric Carle, since March 20th will be the 42nd anniversary of the publishing of the Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Eric Carle's pictures are made by collage using painted paper, which is what accounts for the saturated colors you see. You can read about it here. His main website can be found here. Hope you will join us!  Baby time 10:15, Toddler time 10:40 on Thursday.
