I am a unicorn! by Michaela Schuett

While Frog is convinced he's a unicorn with his clip-on tail, party hat horn, and ability to fly on swings, Goat is determined to show Frog that he's not, but Goat is about to learn that when someone truly believes, sometimes magic happens.

Bilingual Storytime Series

Early child research shows that bilingual children have an edge in development. Speaking two languages benefits children’s overall learning, marked by larger vocabularies, flexible problem-solving skills, and higher-level cognitive abilities. Bilingual learning also supports a set of mental skills that allow children to thrive academically, regulate emotions, and grow into mentally healthier adults.

Join us as we share books, rhymes and songs that will help foster an appreciation of our wonderful multicultural community and language. Activities presented will be geared to children between the ages of 0-5 years old.

December 14 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in French and English. 

December 27 - Join us for a bilingual storytime presented in Spanish and English.
