Hey Kids! As of today it’s less than 50 days until Summer Reading (and summer vacation—hint hint!). It’s even starting to feel like summer! Thankfully the library is nice and air conditioned. Very important for someone who wears a big fur coat like me!
The weather is getting warmer and children are eager to play outside. Their curiosity often leads them to investigate all the little critters crawling about, and sometimes a bug or two might even make its way home with them. Then what do you do? The Animal Planet Pet Care series has a book Bugs as Pets which tells you how to house and properly care for your new "pet".
Get crafty with help from these books. These craft projects with They Might Be Giants playing in the background could lead to a very fun rainy day!
