Moose Hill Story Times

Story times in the great outdoors? Why not?!? In May, the Children’s Room has partnered with Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary in Sharon, MA to create three special story times for preschoolers. All story times will take place at Moose Hill and feature animal-themed stories, a craft, and an outdoor exploration component (weather permitting!).
