Little Bookworms Story Time – Boston Adoption Center

christine-with-ferret-at-little-bookworms

Little Bookworms is taking place as scheduled.  Please email bostonhumaneed@mspca.org to join our email list for program updates and cancellations.

It is highly recommended that all participants wear a mask while inside the MSPCA.  Any participant demonstrating signs of illness will not be allowed to participate.  If a participant tests positive for COVID-19 within 5 days of participation, the MSPCA must be notified of this positive test.

The “Little Bookworms” story time provides an age appropriate activity that fosters a sense of responsibility and compassion in our youngest visitors, from those learning to walk to those in preschool. We invite our community’s youngest animal lovers to join us with their adult counterparts for weekly story time. During the hour-long session, we read stories, sing songs and play games, all with an animal theme. We bring at least one adoptable animal into the room to visit and are happy to answer questions about caring for each type of animal.

Getting to Story Time

We host story time in the Education and Training Room at the MSPCA Boston Adoption Center at 350 S. Huntington Avenue in Jamaica Plain.  The Boston Animal Care and Adoption Center Education Room has its own entrance at the back of the MSPCA building. To get to the entrance drive past the first parking lot on your right when you enter the driveway. Follow the driveway until it ends and bear left. Continue past the first set of double doors to the Angell Animal Medical Center and past the second set of double doors which is the main adoption center entrance. Take a left at the end of the parking lot and you will see a set of gray stairs and railing leading up to the Education Room entrance.  We use this room for other activities in the mornings, so unfortunately we cannot open the doors sooner.

What We Read

appreciation-007The stories we read include fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.  Many have been awarded the Henry Bergh Children’s Book Award, which honors books that promote the humane ethic of compassion and respect for all living things.  If you have a great book in mind for the “Little Bookworms” story time, please share it with us!

Bringing a Group

If you are interested in arranging an alternative story time session to accommodate a large group, such as a preschool or kindergarten class, please email bostonhumaneed@mspca.org.  Please be sure to include the ages and number of participants.

Please email any questions about the program to bostonhumaneed@mspca.org.
