The first day of summer also brought the second installment of the Summer Reading program at Newaygo District Library and on this sunny Thursday morning Jurassic World landed in Newaygo.
No, not the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie that has once again sparked an ever simmering interest in dinosaurs. It was Paleo Joe who has been spinning his stories and paleontological presentations to young and old for 25 years.
The Midland based Paleontologist begins with teaching the crowd about the fossils that are found in our state with some interesting twists and tips on finding them. Then, of course, when he segues into dinosaurs the energy of the young crowd ramps up a few levels and a sea of hands are thrust in the air, each with a vital question attached.
Soon the Dinomobile was off to the White Cloud Library for another show. Paleo Joe had visited Grant earlier in the week and this coming Tuesday he will be bringing his presentation to the Fremont branch.
These programs are outstanding ways to spend a bit of time on a summer day and the kids in attendance were making the most of a gorgeous first official day of summer
Next week Thursday (6-29) will see the arrival of the Outdoor Discovery Center along with some of their animal friends.
