"The Magic of 3..." at the 4th Friday Story Time

“The Magic of 3” – folktales that feature a wonderful combination of three main characters, three magic wishes, etc. are coming to the 4th Friday Discovery Times! Mrs. Linda (Woodward) shares the magic of folktales and drama beginning in August with the Three Billy Goats Gruff.  Each fourth Friday will always include a traditional folktale that features “The Magic of 3” and preschoolers will be encouraged to “put on their imagination hats” while  listening and then actually participate in a dramatic version of the day’s featured story.

Mrs. Judy and therapy dog, Slick Willy, will begin each 4th Friday story time with a special dog book along with songs and finger plays.
Don’t miss any of these special 4th Fridays, 10:30-11:30am.
Check our online calendar for future story titles.
