Train Safety – Preschool Storytime

I just realized I had a bunch of storytime posts that I had saved in draft format and never published!  This is one of them.

I was contacted by our local Metro staff to see if they could present at the library about Train Safety.  We ended up on wrapping it in to a storytime about trains.  The kids had fun and hopefully learned some tips on how to be safe!
