Got some squiggly squirming children? Get them engaged with "hands-on" storytelling! Join local storyteller Jonathan Kruk, live on Facebook Sunday 11 - 12 noon. Guided by a master tale-teller, children turn their hands into fabulous characters. They'll race Rabbit and Turtle. Help a Mouse, roar like a Lion, and find out why Spider has Crooked legs. Plus, families get a take-home tale with an ending they will make up with a wake-up call to the sun. https://www.facebook.com/beaconlibrary/
