This Friday, Chestnut Hill Farm is holding another interactive storytime for preschoolers. (Pre-registration is requested, and there is a fee.)

Book Bugs on the Farm is for 3-5 year olds. The Trustees of Reservations program will takes place 10:30 – 11:30 am the first Friday of each month (at least through March).

This month, the focus is wool. Farm Manager Desiree Robertson-DuBois is hosting this week’s. Which means kids can also meet the farmer and ask questions.

The Trustees of Reservations’ Kira LaFosse-Baker writes:

Bring your favorite little bug (ages 3-5ish) and join us in the cottage for a reading of Woolbur, a story about a very special sheep, (ok, and I might have to read a cute goat story too) and then we will get a little woolly ourselves!

We will be talking about sheep, wool and creating a fun ‘from scratch’ felt box, perfect for hiding a little secret in and safe for little hands to smush and hold. Please pre-register here so we know how many materials to get.

Des is hosting this event, so you can also meet the farmer and ask her your sheepy questions.

$9/kidlet member $15/nonmembers. If the day is nice, we will also go for a walk to see the goats and snack is provided too!

And save the date for the March 3rd program:

Growing Vegetable Soup” (a story about planting and caring for vegetables.) Kids will learn new words, explore the farm, and wrap up by planting seeds to care for at home.

Registration costs $9 per member child and $15 for non-members. (Accompanying adults are free.)
