A new season of Animal Tales Storytime will begin Sept. 4 at the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe.
Animal Tales Storytime invites young children and their parents to come listen and learn during any or all of the eight sessions scheduled on two Wednesdays per month through Dec. 18.
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.
