Elinor Wonders Why 

taking place next Monday, September 28 at 10 am?

 

RI PBS and the Woonsocket Harris Library have a new partnership that encourages preschool children ages 3-5 and their caregivers to watch ELINOR WONDERS WHY. The new PBS show aims to encourage children to follow their curiosity, ask questions when they don’t understand and find answers using science inquiry skills. The main character Elinor, the most observant and curious bunny rabbit in Animal Town, will introduce kids ages 3-5 to science, nature and community through adventures with her friends. 

 

In order to pick up your free Elinor Wonders Why explorer kit at participating libraries you must register at http://bit.ly/RIelinor. Participating libraries include East Providence Public Library, Providence Community Library, or Rogers Free Library, Woonsocket Harris Public Library.
