LEGO Building @ The Wollaston Branch

Recommended for ages 5+

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!

Preschool Discovery: Colors

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. 

The BabyLit Series by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver

Are you tired of reading the same old board books to your baby or toddler? If so, the BabyLit series might be for you. Jennifer Adams cleverly reimagines classic titles like “Sense and Sensibility” and “Dracula” for the youngest readers, pairing them each with a single theme like opposites or counting. Adults will appreciate the original quotes and characters used within the pages, and children will love Alison Oliver’s bold, engaging artwork. In our house, our favorite is “Anna Karenina: A Fashion Primer,” but this whole series is constantly getting pulled off the bookshelf by little hands.
