This month our KiDLS programs are all about oceans:  what they mean to us, the animals that live in them, and what we can do to save them. In the Little KiDLS video, Ms. Kary and I read about the ocean and sea turtles and show you how to assemble the craft. The Deerfield Public Library has a great deal of books regarding oceans and below you’ll find just a few of them listed for Little KiDLS and KiDLS.
