Global Readers: Story Time with Mindful and Inclusive Books
After you pick up the kiddos from school on Wednesday, September 18th, continue the fun learning at Hazel Baby & Kids with their Story Time with Mindful and Inclusive Books! From 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm, have the kiddos listen to guest reader Nisha Vedi Pawar as she reads Always Anjali by author Sheetal Sheth. Nisha chose the book because: “it is perfect for back-to-school. And themes include being kind to people even if they are different, and standing up for yourself.” Now those are ideals everyone can support! This story is recommended for little ones between the ages of 3 – 6.
