Go to the Library

Aiko, Bennet and Orion here. We wanted to remind you parents out there about your local library. See, our mom had no idea that there was a whole world for us littles there. We sing, or sometimes just sit instead of standing with everyone else. Read stories. Mimic and watch everyone around us. Get cool hand stamps each week. Plus, the library always has fun activities for us to take home. We don't know about you guys out there, but OUR library has all these toys to play with! Some toys we can check out ourselves (since our mom got
