Dr. Barak and His Chicken Herbert Made for a Successful Summertime Storytime
Dr. Barak and his chicken Herbert visited the Koch-Young Resource Center library on August 27, 2012 to read two books during summertime storytime: "The Snail Who Lost His Trail" and "The Octopus Who Tried To Grow A Mustache."
The event started with a puppet show, followed by an interactive reading of each of the books, and concluded with some activities. Each child also selected a copy of their favorite of the two books, which Dr. Barak then signed.
