We sang songs about Mary who was contrary and Jack & Jill who liked to fetch water. We read a great book about how your garden grows. After our stories and songs, we went outside and planted a garden! What fabulous gardeners came to storytime today. They did an excellent job planting our special flower garden!
If you missed today's storytime, please join us next week on Monday at 10am. We can't wait to see you!
