Summer Reading Tip #6: Cheep! Moo! Roar!

Does your kid love animals?  If so, then you have an easy way to hook your kids on books.  Fiction and non-fiction books about animals abound; we have plenty to offer to your future veterinarian.

The Adventuremobile brings a new animal to show-and-tell to your kids every week.  From crawdads to baby chicks to cool bugs, we can inspire your young zoologist to explore the world of animals.  There’s a different creature every week.
