As the preschool liaison for our library, it is my job to visit all of the preschools in the city and engage them in a fun learning experience. These past few months have been filled with bugs; books shared, rhymes acted out, and songs sung. You can create your own bug-infested learning experience this summer by sharing the suggested books below, and heading to the Brookfield Zoo to experience Extreme Bugs, a new exhibit.
Get your child excited about bugs by sharing the following books with him/her:
Bug Safari by Bob Barner
Big Bug Surprise by Julia Gran
Buglette the Messy Sleeper by Bethanie Deeney Murguia
The Bugliest Bug by Carol Diggory Shields
Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad by David Soman
After you have excited them with your tales of bug life, check out one of our Museum Adventure Passes to Brookfield Zoo. The pass is good for two free general admissions. While you are there, check out their Extreme Bugs exhibit and enhance your child's learning experience.
When you get home, you can find a ton of books in our non-fiction collection on your child's new favorite bug. Will it be a Stink Bug, a Lady Bug, or a Praying Mantis? Visit the zoo, read some books and find out! Get more information on the zoo's Extreme Bugs exhibit here.
