This lapsit storytime is geared for little ones ages 0 to 3; all ages are welcome to attend! Small Fry Lapsit Storytimes are 20 minutes long and filled with short books, songs, action rhymes, and more! Some stories and rhymes are repeated each week, and new ones are gradually introduced. Everyone sits on the floor, with children sitting in their caregiver’s laps, so grown-ups can share in the fun.
