Read to the Animals Story Time
at Eastshore Humane Association
First Thursday of the month
4:30 PM

Stories, songs, movement, and crafts for toddlers.

Toddler Time doesn’t just create a love of stories and help promote early literacy, but it helps build emergent literacy. It is promoting the foundation blocks of reading and writing, such as letter recognition and sounds. Toddler Time also provides skills that a child will need in schools, such as social, motor, and problem-solving skills. Join us on Tuesdays at 10:30 AM for a fun fill Toddler Time hour.

Alphabet Storytime doesn’t just create a love of stories, it helps promote early literacy by exploring the building blocks of reading and writing through books, music, movement, and play. Alphabet Storytime also works on developing social, fine motor, and problem-solving skills. Join us on Wednesdays at 10:30 AM for a fun-filled Storytime Hour with a focus on preschoolers age 3 to 4.

On the first Thursday of the month at 4:30 PM, join the Chilton Public Library as we Read to the Animals at Eastshore Humane Association (Chilton).
