Birds, Reptiles and Amphibians - Oh my!!!!

HATCH!-Houston Audubon Society: Tuesday, July 27th @ 3:30 pm

Chickens are not the only animals that hatch from eggs! Our friend and special guest, Mary Anne Weber, will visit the library to share stories and songs about all the amazing animals that hatch from eggs.  Younger audiences, particularly pre-school age, will enjoy learning about biology and the world in which they live. Ms Weber also will bring a few friends of her own to share with the children. Is anyone willing to guess what type of animals may be visiting the library...I gave you a few hints at the top of this blog.

Creative Corner

I spent the Fourth of July weekend with my niece and nephew who were visiting from Colorado.  During their visit, we created several art projects together. 

Below are a few of my favorite resources for exploring art with children.  Please feel free to share any art projects or books that you have found to be useful.
