Burpee Rocks Reading

Learning Science Through Literature!

Join us for a delightful encounter with one of our favorite live animals alongside a special book read-aloud!

Burpee Rocks! Reading Rocks! This fun session combines the joy of a read-aloud story with the excitement of meeting live animals! Interactive class sessions are crafted to spark curiosity, promote literacy, and foster learning through children’s books and real-life animal experiences. 

Gather around for a captivating story time, where we’ll read aloud a special book. Afterward, get up close with the featured creature, gently touching and capturing special moments in photographs.  While the class is designed for kids 5 and under with their parents, grandparents, or caregivers, Burpee welcomes any age interested in participating.
