Our Saturday, March 22 Family Story Time was dedicated to stories written and drawn by Valeri Gorbachev.

And... because it was such a lovely, sunny afternoon... we held our program outside!

For extra fun and merriment, all our young friends received a happy, yellow balloon (like in the story Molly Who Flew Away below).

Here are some Valeri Gorbachev stories to share with your child.
