SPECIAL STORY TIME: The Wild Life of Limericks from A to Z

We're hosting a special story time on Saturday, August 12th at 11:00am! Jean Merrill and Doug Munch will be leading story time with their new children's book The Wild Life of Limericks from A to Z. This event will be perfect for all kids, so bring your family and have some fun with lots of witty and humorous limericks (with some fun facts thrown in!). 
The Wild Life of Limericks from A to Z by Jean Merrill and Doug Munch
What keeps the ant from reaching its full potential?
Should the warthog be camera shy?
Why does the yak wear a skirt?
How long is an elephant sneeze?

The Wild Life of Limericks from A to Z transforms the alphabet from the mundane to the memorable as the reader travels on a wildlife adventure of humorous limericks and witty illustrations that create indelible images of creatures great and small. To augment the joy of learning, we have included “fun facts” and vivid close ups of each creature photographed in their natural environment.

As a special treat, we have “hidden” every letter of the alphabet in each illustration, sometimes well disguised, sometimes in plain sight, sometimes once, sometimes several times.

Can you find the hidden alphabet letters?
