Raindrops Roll by April Pulley Sayre

"Rain is coming. You can feel it in the air." With rhythmic language and beautiful photography, Raindrops Roll begins with descriptions of the various signs of impending rain. Insects look for shelter under leaves and inside pods, while a bird enjoys the shower from a comfy perch.

Preschool Discovery: Space

Bring your preschooler to the Wollaston Branch to learn a little about outer space! No, we can't take off in a real space ship or visit the International Space Station. We can't touch a comet or travel to Jupiter. But we can still look up at the sky at night and we can still learn about outer space.

We'll be doing some space activities at this month's Preschool Discovery but there are things we can't do at the library that you can do at home!

Bring your preschooler to the Wollaston Branch to play with and learn about colors this coming Wednesday! We'll be exploring the world of color for our January science evening at Wollaston. Sort colors, see the world through rose (or blue, or yellow) tinted glasses and make wild colored foam!

Colors are an easy science topic to explore right in your own home before and after our program (or if you can't make it in). After all, colors are all around us in the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the sky, the ground and everything else.
