STORY TIME IN THE CHILDRENS GARDEN
Sunday, November 3, 2019
12:30pm - 1:30pm
Help promote early childhood literacy, healthy minds and bodies, and artistic imagination by joining us on the first Sunday of each month for Story Time in the Children’s Garden. Gather in our outdoor reading area in the shade of the southern live oak where Ms. Barbara will read the children a story related to nature. This month’s story is "Room on the Broom" by Axel Scheffler.
After the story, Ms. Cintia encourages imagination and mindfulness through yoga. Children (and parents too!) participate in breathing exercises and yoga poses based on the subject of the story and the animals in our sanctuary. Afterwards, the children can express their own creativity by participating in a craft inspired by the story.
Story Time is free with paid admission (or membership) to Flamingo Gardens. An adult must stay with the child during story time, yoga and the craft. For more information, contact the Education Department at 954-473-2955 x115.

Flamingo Gardens is proud to be a part of Jumpstart's "Read for the Records" Day!
Flamingo Gardens is hosting a special Story Time in the Children’s Garden where we will read this year’s award-winning book, "Thank You, Omu!" by Oge Mora. After the story, children can participate in yoga and a craft based on the story.
Now in its 14th year, Jumpstart’s "Read for the Record day brings together millions of adults and children around the world each year to read the same book on the same day in order to raise awareness about the critical importance of early literacy. Through a partnership between the Children's Services Council, Broward County Public Schools, Early Learning Coalition of Broward County, the Jim Moran Foundation, United Way, and multiple Broward early childhood stakeholders, a copy of "Thank You Omu" will be provided to eachPreK (age 4-5) and kindergarten child.
This program is free with paid admission or membership to Flamingo Gardens. An adult must stay with the child during story time, yoga and the craft. For more information, contact the Education Department at 954-473-2955 x115.
