It's that time of year, time to sit back and relax every Friday morning at 10:30, under the shady trees of the Richmond Library, as we offer "Stories in the Shade" for you and your little ones. These are stories, action rhymes and music best for children ages 2-6. No craft, but maybe some bubble blowing, ball throwing, music-making and other fun. Bring a blanket (I have a few to share) or a chair. Start the morning at the library and then head off to the beach or the park.
We'll meet Friday, July 16, 23, 30 and August 6, 13.
I don't generally have a theme, but this Friday is mostly books about the ocean and swimming, including the very cute "Froggy Learns to Swim" by Jonathan London, illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz. Can you imagine a frog who is afraid to swim? Well, Froggy is, but his mom teaches him how using techniques you might remember from your own childhood swim lessons. (Chicken, Airplane, Soldier anyone?)
