This week, meet some of the cutest and silliest animal families.

For the final week of story time we will read Rabbits & Raindrops by Jim Arnosky, Tweedle Dee Dee by Charlotte Voake and Are You My Mother? By P.D. Eastman. Ideal for children ages 3 to 6 with their adult companions. Free with admission to the grounds.
