Named as one of “Teachers’ Top 100 books for Children” by the National Education Association, Stellaluna by Janell Cannon now comes to life courtesy of the Leslie Science and Nature Center NatureTales program. This wonderful book tells the tale of Stellaluna, a bat who is forced out from under her mother’s wing who grows up with a family of birds wondering why she is different. When she meets up with her mother again, she discovers her heritage, and when her adopted family gets in trouble, she’ll come to the rescue thanks to her ability to fly at night. This story time goes on during the day but the focus will be on nocturnal animals, specifically bats. This event will include a live animal visit and tailored outdoor activity. NatureTales goes on twice a month during the school year. For ages 1-5, accompanied by an adult. Children under age one get in free; Registration is highly recommended.
