Don’t have a huge reader on your hands or short on time? Have you tried audiobooks? I love them for when I’m working with other kids and need to occupy young kids, they’re great for kids to read and Audible makes it so I don’t have to wait weeks and weeks for holds to become available through our library.
Ocean lovers will love any of these fun ocean toys and when they can name and recognize their favorite ocean creatures, it’s such a treat to see their faces light up.
