Kindergarten & First Grade: Snow Day at the Library

Kindergarten and First Grade students come to the Library to celebrate snow and art by studying the Caldecott winning book The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. They will learn about animal tracks by participating in an animal track journey around the children’s department which will introduce them to the various book collections in the section. We will look at similarities and differences between types of texts. This program lasts approximately one hour.
