Special weekend storytime with Disney Animator and Art Director Andy Harkness!
A young boy's interest in entomology also gives him an unexpected appreciation for the way we interact with, and care for, creatures big and small, in Bug Zoo by Andy Harkness—the latest addition to the Disney Animation Artist Showcase picturebook series.
In Bug Zoo, readers meet Ben, and Ben LOVES bugs! Big, small, armored, leggy, floaty, wingy—it doesn't matter. After a trip to the city zoo, Ben decides he's going to share his love of bugs by collecting all the bugs he can find and set up a bug zoo. When his zoo doesn't attract the attention he thought it would, he has to make a big decision about the fate of his finds.
Join us for a read-aloud storytime, perfect for kids ages 4–8.
