It's December, but we still have one more DINOVEMBER story! Who doesn't like dinosaurs?!! Our theme for the last week of Dinovember is Holiday Dinosaurs!
Story Time programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, songs, crafts, and other fun activities. Library Story Time incorporates the early literacy skills that children must master before they can learn to read. Story Times are designed for children 3-5 years old, though all ages are welcome. The program lasts approximately 45 minutes and caregivers are asked to participate with their children. Story Time is held in the Children's Department. This fall, Story Time will also be broadcast online, live, on Tuesdays at 10 am (see below for details).

Today's Story Time: We will read a Chanukah dinosaur story and make a dinosaur holiday card.
Today's Book: How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? by Jane Yolen; illustrated by Mark Teague.
Book Synopsis: From the warm glow of holiday candles in the menorah to the fun of family gatherings, little dinosaurs love to celebrate the Festival of Lights. But sometimes the excitement of Chanukah, its treasured rituals, and the tradition of gifts can tempt a youngster to misbehave. . . . Come along on a joyful romp filled with tumbling dreidels and melting gelt as America's favorite prehistoric pals spread a little mischief this season. Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs fidget, fuss, and stomp through every occasion, while their human parents shift from shock to weary patience. Filled with warmth and cheer, this book by the bestselling team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague makes a perfect gift to be read again and again, year after year.
