Storytimes: D is for Dog!

Fri, 12/16/2016 - 1:27pm

[cover_image]|1387123[/cover_image]

Elizabeth shared Dog stories this week at storytimes at Traverwood and Westgate! We heard about the adorable, yet misbehaving dog who wouldn’t drop the shoe in [:catalog/record/1456678|Drop It, Rocket] … until he heard a story, of course! Farm animals had to bravely venture into the scary doghouse to find their missing ball in Jan Thomas’ [:catalog/record/1332806|The Doghouse]. Mack the dog ate a cake intended for the farmer in [:catalog/record/1056944|The Cake That Mack Ate], and we met a “talking” dog in Lois Ehlert’s [:catalog/record/1387123|Rrralph]! Of course, storytime wouldn’t have been complete without a rousing version of B-I-N-G-O!

AADL’s new Westgate storytimes take place three times a week in the program room:

Mondays, from 11:00-11:30am
Wednesdays, from 1:00-1:30pm
Fridays, from 10:00-10:30am

Storytimes are intended for ages 2-5 years. All are welcome and no sign-up or registration is required.
