A Look Into What Miss Jennifer's November 8th Baby Tales Lapsit 6-23 Months Storytime Was Like!

I really enjoy performing my new weekly Baby Tales Lap-sit Storytime. I promise that when parents and their little ones (6-23 months) enter the Program Room they are going to get a sassy, silly, and entertaining storytime experience filled with movement, music, stories, and interactive play. 

Check out my November 8th Lap-sit storytime which captures the magic that books and babies encourage!
