Fall and turkeys are the themes of  November Animal Tales Storytime sessions being planned at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe. Young children and their parents are invited to come listen and learn during any or all of the eight sessions scheduled on select Wednesdays through Dec. 20.
Animal Tales Storytime is for ages two to six. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This program will feature stories, songs, and surprises. Participants will also get to meet a special animal friend at each session. Animal Tales Storytime was one of the many programs cited when the Ernie Miller Nature Center won an Oracle Award for Organizational Service and Leadership in the South Central Region from the National Storytelling Network a few years ago.
November sessions include “Fall Sights & Sounds” on Nov. 1, and “Turkey Time” on Nov. 15.  Other upcoming storytime sessions are scheduled for: Dec. 6, “Mrs. Claus Reads;” and Dec. 20, “A Visit with Santa.” Each session takes place on a Wednesday and will begin at 10:30 a.m.
The cost per 30-minute session is $2 per person, including adults, payable at the event. Advance registrations are not necessary for this program.
