WED, AUGUST 5    STORIES IN THE GARDEN: RAD REPTILES
Each week, Wave Hill educators share some of their favorite nature tales. These stories—classics and more—come to life through interactive readings, sing-alongs and puppetry. This week, get ready to hiss, rattle and make a splash as we read stories about our scaly friends, the reptiles. Our fun movement pieces and counting rhymes will bring everyone out of their shells. Stories this week: Baby Rattlesnake by Viborita de Cascabel, Turtle Splash by Cathryn Falwell and Mossy by Jan Brett. Programs are held outdoors in good weather; in Wave Hill House in inclement weather. Ideal for children ages three to six with an adult. Free with admission to the grounds.
