Books 'N Bugs

child doing craft projectMy children love to be read to.   There’s nothing like a wonderful children’s story to carry them away on magical adventures in their imagination.

But like most children, they are also fascinated with the outdoors and especially the little creatures they find on their explorations like bugs, butterflies, caterpillars….really anything smaller than they are!

Texas Discovery Gardens has brought these two wonders of childhood together with the Books ‘N Bugs story time.   Your child will make crafts, hear a story read to them and then enjoy a themed snack!   The session ends with the daily noon butterfly release.

She Is Dallas Info: Books ‘N Bugs will take place on Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 11:00 am – noon at Texas Discovery Gardens located at 3601 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Dallas, Texas 75210.
