Story Time Links – Flowers & Gardening

The Library Adventure uses affiliate links, see our policies for more information.

I’m excited to tell you about a new feature we are launching here at The Library Adventure on Saturdays. We will be sharing some resource posts. We will have themed pairings of books and activities for preschool and elementary ages for two of the Saturdays. We will also have a Library Spotlight on the last Saturday of the month. Today’s post is the fourth type of Saturday post.

This resource post will focus on Story Time programming. Each month’s post will have a theme. This month’s theme is flowers and gardening. Next month will be rain and rainbows.

I hope these posts will be a help to you and if there is ever any type of resources you would like to see on the blog, please let me know! You can leave a comment on any post or use the contact page to shoot me an email. I’m here to help you!
