Hoof it on down to the library for a rootin'-tootin' good time as we celebrate this year's Kansas Reads to Preschoolers title,  Ten Pigs: An Epic Bath Adventure.  After enjoying the story and an intense game of Wheel of Pigs, preschoolers can have a squealing good time as they paint a pig snout, create beautiful bubble art, play Pin the Tail on the Pig, and pig out on a piggy snack. For ages 3-5.

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers is an annual event that promotes reading to all Kansas children from birth through age five. Through the statewide program, parents, librarians and caregivers are encouraged to read the chosen title during a selected week and month.
