Love storytimes AND crafts? Let's put them together to practice "6 by 6" pre-reading skills! Preschoolers aged 3 to 5 are invited to grab a grown-up and come to the library to hear a few stories and then make a craft based on the stories we heard. Stories and crafts will be specially selected to let kids practice their 6 by 6 skills and to give adults tips for reinforcing these important skills at home. Children will need some help from their adult to complete the craft. Adults may bring more than one child but will need to assist each child they bring. Program will last about 35 - 45 minutes.
