I hope you were able to join us for Elmer's Special Day by David McKee. This is such a fun book to read and look at! It was very nice of Elmer to invite the other animals to join the Elephant Parade. It helped all of the animals become friends with each other! Elmer showed us that a great way to make new friends is to ask others to play with you.

There are a lot of ways you can help the creatures (and plants!) in your own backyard. Don't have a backyard? Don't worry, you can do a number of the activities on a stoop or balcony too! Below you find a list of resources to guide you in creating your own insect havens as well as some tips to helping out our endangered monarch butterfly and bee friends.
