Infant Toddler Storytimes – July 29 – Frogs!


Did you know that froggies jump high and froggies jump low?  (Great way to reinforce our opposites.)

And did you know that they eat flies???  (Already introducing next week’s theme-bugs.)

And did you know that they can be very curious about what OTHER animals eat?   (Hint:  Curiosity isn’t only dangerous for cats!)

There was a lot going on in our storytimes about frogs today!  We had quite a bit of hopping and ribbiting which made for a jumpin’ good time!
