I'm happy to share story time with the children at Yates CDC. Each week I try to select a book with a unique story and artwork with diverse characters and situations. It is a highlight of my week!

It's my favorite and I like it because we read stories over and over again.

Mr. J is so funny! He makes me laugh. He reads us funny books.

I grew up dancing and wanted to continue sharing fun, creative movement with kids to see them active! Each class consists of stretching, learning and practicing gross motor skills, and a fun game!
