Book Bunch @ Library & Museum – Nat’l Children’s Dental Health Month
Feb 27 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Elementary grade level homeschooled children and their families are invited to bring their current reads to share with each other. Enjoy a time of sharing about what we’re reading, book recommendations, silly jokes and fun activities based on a theme.

National Children’s Dental Health Month was selected to be the theme in February by the children and caregivers. We will welcome a guest from Seward Family Dentistry to share how important taking care of our teeth can be. Children at the next meeting will select the theme for March, so don’t miss out! Older students are also welcome to attend, be a reading role model and help with the program.

Note the change in name to Book Bunch from Lunch Bunch and the change in time to 1-2pm. This unique program has been updated to better meet the interests and needs of the local homeschooled children and their families in our community.
