The Prairie Community Library’s Summer Reading Program started last week with lots of fun! The theme is dinosaurs. On Wednesday we learned about paleontologists and got to dig up our own dinosaurs. The following day, Thursday, we found out about fossils and how they form. The kids even got to make their own fossils! On Friday, we learned about the giant herbivore dinosaurs, which include the largest land animals to walk on earth! Then, on Monday, we learned about the impressive carnivorous dinosaurs. The Reading Program will continue on Wednesday June 19 and Thursday June 20 from 9:30 - 11:30. Hope to see you there! Click on each  photo for a larger view..
