May 2015 Reading List

Written By: admin - Jun• 07•15

One of our favorite things to do is to go to the library. This month’s reading list (May 2015) you will many of the books focus on “dinosaurs and the skeletal system.”   Some books CBear and I read only once, while others we may read two or three times a day.  Check back with us at the end of the month and we’ll let you know which ones were our favorites.
