Happy Times February 2015

Love is in the air! Join us for our Valentine’s Party 2/13.

Do turtles & tortoises live a long time? Snakes are always sticking out their tongue but why? Why do lizards have legs but snakes don’t? Why should I never smile at a crocodile!? February is all about reptiles. They’re not slimy or gross. They are a lot like us in some ways. 🙂

We will be reading these books:

You can read them at home too. Please remember to read with your children every night. Click the book to learn more & buy from Amazon.

Smart Kids Reptiles National Geographic Readers: Snakes! National Geographic Readers: Lizards Alligators and Crocodiles
