Ages: 2-7 year olds
Enjoy a world of books with Ruby the Reading Red Panda! Ruby is a plush red panda who loves to read. Follow along on Ruby’s Facebook page as we explore a new book each month. Each month we’ll learn new crafts, meet some Zoo animals and get ideas on how to get outside and explore nature in our own backyards!
Kids who join Ruby’s Readers Book Club will receive a birthday card from Ruby on their birthday! Families can also choose to purchase a Ruby’s Readers Book Bundle which includes all of the books we will be reading this year and a plush red panda.
Once a month, join us for Ruby’s Story Time at the Zoo! Each month we will read a story and meet a special live ambassador animal from the Zoo’s education department.
Story Time: 2nd Monday of each month at 11 am
No registration required to attend Ruby’s Story Times.
Ruby’s Story Times are free with your Zoo membership or paid Zoo admission.
Can’t come to the Zoo? Join us with our good friends at EveryStep for a special bilingual storytime virtually each month. Each month we’ll read a story in a different language and then read it again in English. After our book we’ll learn about one of the animals that calls Blank Park Zoo home!
Virtual Storytime: 2nd Monday of each month at 11:45 am
Meeting ID: 952 2476 2671
