Rhythm and Rhyme Family Time – Growing Vegetables

Families with children from birth to 5 years old are welcome to join us on Monday mornings for an informal program of stories, action songs, and a craft.  Our special book, Up, Down & Around, uses simply rhyming text and colorful cartoon illustrations to teach children that some vegetables grow underground, some shoot up above the ground, and some like tomato vines twine all around. We’ll continue the fun as we learn several new planting songs before moving to the craft table.

Especially for children from birth to 24 months.

 Cruise Into Kindergarten – Opossums
