Calendar Event Photo

OCPL Parents,
We now have January Story Time boxes available for you to bring home for your kids!

This month's theme is "Arctic Animals."

Polar Animals book coverEach "Arctic Animals" Story Time box will contain a copy of the Scholastic Reader book, Polar Animals. This is a Level 1  reader, appropriate for kids aged pre-K through Grade 2. This nonfiction easy reader has simple, rhyming text and close-up photography of polar bears, penguins, walruses, arctic foxes, seals, and more! The text is written in easy-to-read rhymes and the book includes three pages of fun learning activities designed to both challenge and entertain new readers.

In addition to the Polar Animals book that your child gets to keep, we will also include a couple of crafts and few surprises in the box as well. These boxes will be "snow much fun!"

Boxes must be reserved in advance. Reserve a January Story Time box for your child by sending an email to our children's specialist, Lee Ann, at [email protected].*

Psst... P.S.: We'll let you in on a little secret. There will be a February Story Time box available next month. The theme will have a carrot nose and two eyes made out of coal. We're talking about snowmen, of course! Stayed tuned for details.
