It is Tuesday, April 27, or as baseball fans like to say, “Happy Babe Ruth Day!” Babe Ruth started playing professional baseball over 100 years ago. In his career, he had hit 714 major league home runs – a record that stood for almost 40 years. He also set or tied many more major league baseball records during his time. Wow! Enjoy learning more about Babe Ruth as Miss Karina reads “Home Run.”
It is time for one or our favorite days of the year – Earth Day! On Thursday, April 22, we celebrate our beautiful planet as we think about all of the things that we love about it – trees, mountains, beaches, flowers, prairies, grasses, rivers, animals. We could name for hours! The celebration of Earth Day was started in 1970 by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson from the state of Wisconsin. He wanted the special day to draw attention to and teach children and young people the importance of caring for the Earth. The Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act (special laws made by political leaders of the United States) are all thought to have come about because of the attention drawn to the need to protect our air, water, and animals starting with that first Earth Day. For this week’s Storytime, we welcome Miss Kyra, the library’s new Assistant Director, for her first time serving as our guest reader as she reads “My Friend Earth.”
