April 2024 - Kid's T-shirt Design Contest!

We are bursting with bubbling anticipation of the celebration of one of the best Reading Time buddies... Mr. Buster! Mr. Buster is an extraordinary buddy because he is always excited to be himself while expressing his creativity. You may have noticed that whenever Mr. Buster is part of a program, he dresses in a costume that is "B" themed. For example, during Play Ball! he was Mr. Buster the Baseball Player. During Movin' & Groovin', he was Mr. Buster the Bicyclist. During Meet Miss Barb, he was Mr. Buster the Barb! 💁‍♂️ Even though he is always dressing up, Mr. Buster wants to encourage everyone he meets to be true to themselves. We are all on our own journey to figuring out who we are, and one great way of doing that is by being creative.

Speaking of creativity, let's introduce you to this month's Craft Corner project!
