We had a real cool program today to end up the Summer Reading Game.

First the curator talked about mammals -- animals with hair or fur, are warm blooded, and give birth to live young.  As an example she brought an opossum.  It was so cute!

Then she talked about birds -- animals with feathers, are warm blooded and lay eggs with hard shells.  The bird she brought was a burrowing owl.

Finally she spoke about reptiles -- animals with scales, cold-blooded and lays leathery eggs.  For this she brought a bearded comoro dragon .

 It was a lot of fun and just what we needed to end the summer.


  1. Animal visits are always fun! The
    children enjoy them & you learn so much. What a great day!

  2. How awesome! I bet the kiddos just loved that :)

  3. Forgot to say this was a program from the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. It was a free program and very good.
