Toddler TimeToddler Time is typically held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month at 10AM.  This toddler storytime is  designed for ages 12 to 36 months* and involves the parent/caregiver as well as the child.  Early learning skills are emphasized through songs, rhymes, movement and short stories.  We realize that  children at these ages are just learning to participate in group    activities and that their attention spans are rather short.  Toddler Time is designed with these things in mind, and we expect that toddlers will roam a bit and need to be redirected frequently. 

* Older  siblings are welcome!

I like fact books. My favorite records are the video game records. Maybe I'll break one someday!
Review
This book is about a girl that went through a fatal accident. It is a very good Christian book, you should read it!

A very good Christian book with fun and excitement. It is about starting life in the New World with Indians around!

I liked this book. I read the whole book at one time because of what the author had said. she said that her closet had some of the same things that his closet had and that interested me.  Mattoon SHARECatalog

So amazing! Best book I've read in a loooong time! I love how Patrick Carmen mixes action with a love triangle. This is the first book in a trilogy. I recommend this book to maybe a 6th grader at the least. But if you are younger and more mature that's OK.  Mattoon SHARECatalog
