It’s Buggy Out There

Summertime also means bugs… I will be repeating a version of this storytime at my Panera Milk and Cookies (Registration Only) and my Randall Oaks (Open, Drop-in!) storytimes on Monday, August 5!

I will be repeating a Silly Stories storytime at Rakow next Wednesday, July 31.

Floating by so merrily.
Flutter, flutter, butterfly,
Floating in the summer sky.
