Friday Fun: Read about the Days of the week.
Friday is our our “fun” day. We spend the day playing with LEGOs, playing pretend together and going to the Library. Here are a few of the books we have on our “to-get” list next time we venture to the library. All of these books are about the days of the week. Kids Activities Blog hopes you’ll enjoy these books and all the other wonders that await at your local library.
