MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home: Back-to-School Buddies!


A fuzzy stuffed elephant toy, the books "Toasty" and "Truman" stacked on top of each other, and a backpack made of paper.


Back to school already?! Join Truman the Turtle and Toasty the … Toast?, along with the rest of us here at MOCAKIDS Storytime, for some big first day adventures. Bring an unusual pet along for the ride (a rock pal? A toy shark? A pet toast?) as we sing songs and make a backpack craft, too!

For August, MOCAKIDS Storytime will be on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays.

Live via Zoom Thursday, August 19th, at 4 P.M. EDT


Please note that this workshop will be recorded via Zoom and hosted on Facebook Live for 24 hours.
