Storytime [May 23, 2024]

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature this May during Storytime! Each week, we’ll read aloud from a book centered on a historical or environmental topic, and then lead a craft or activity. This May, we’ll explore gardening, growing, and other springtime themes!

On May 23, we’ll read Senorita Mariposa by Ben Gundersheimer (illustrated by Marcos Almada Rivero).

At the end of each summer, monarch butterflies leave Canada to fly south to Mexico for the winter—and now, readers can come along for the ride! Rhyming text and lively illustrations showcase the epic trip taken by these international travelers—over mountains capped with snow to the deserts down below. Children will be delighted to share in the fascinating journey of the monarch butterflies while being introduced to the people and places they pass.Scholastic Book Club

On May 30, we’ll read Let’s Build a Rain Garden, written and illustrated by Sally Wenczel.

Let’s Build a Rain Garden leads children into Great Lakes Region ecology through verse. They’ll get a close up look at the fun creatures and native plants that thrive inside a rain garden, while learning the more high-level terms STORMWATER and WATERSHED. The book is written for children, however adults will also enjoy taking notes on the basic steps for building a rain garden. Be a part of the solution to stop the pollution. It all begins with YOU! -Amazon
