Baby and Toddler Storytime

Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 10:00 am

These 20-30 minute story times are full of books, songs, rhymes and fingerplays for children birth to two years old. Our Baby and Toddler Story Time is a great way to introduce your child to language skills in a positive and fun environment. With slightly more activity and movement than our lap times, children and their grownups are encouraged engage with the books and songs and to actively participate in the program.
Little Red Riding Hood

Hungry Like the Wolf: Re-Tellings of the Red Riding Hood Tale

Over the years, Little Red Riding Hood, a story that originated in France and was authored by Charles Perrault, has been adapted and re-told many times. It remains a fascinating tale and the West End Interim Library welcomes families with children ages 3-7 to attend a Kid's EuroFest story-time that will present several versions of the classic tale. The story will become new and exciting again for those who have heard the classic version before, and will be enjoyed by those experiencing it for the first time.
