New season of Animal Tales Storytime sessions begins Sept. 4 at Ernie Miller Nature Center

A new season of Animal Tales Storytime sessions is beginning at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe. Young children and their parents are invited to come listen and learn during any or all of the eight sessions scheduled on Wednesdays between Sept. 4 and Dec. 18.

Animal Tales Storytime is for ages two to six. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This program will feature stories, songs, and surprises. Participants will also get to meet a special animal friend at each session. Animal Tales Storytime was one of the many programs cited when the Ernie Miller Nature Center won an Oracle Award for Organizational Service and Leadership in the South Central Region from the National Storytelling Network in 2011. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “storytelling.”

The first program of this season will be offered on Sept. 4 when the theme will be “Wiggly Worms.” Other upcoming storytime sessions are scheduled for: Sept. 18 ("Monarch Adventures"); Oct. 2 ("Johnny Appleseed"); Oct. 16 ("Native American Stories"); Nov. 6 ("Whooo Do You See?"); Nov. 20 ("Turkey Days"); and Dec. 4 ("Animals Tails"), and Dec. 18 ("A Visit With Santa").
