Children take imaginary trip to Mexico, learn about butterflies

Jerry Schneider knows a lot about butterflies and he loves teaching children about them. Fortunately for Fauquier kids, Mr. Schneider will be in town on Monday as part of the public library's free Amazing Tales summer reading program.

 
On Monday, July 11, children will learn about the migration of monarch butterflies to and from Mexico, and about the Day of the Dead festivities and why butterflies are so important to this special holiday. This special event, Let's Go to Mexico!, is recommended for children entering K-5th grade this fall.

 
To add to the fun, kids attending this special event will do a cool butterfly craft. They should bring a white T-shirt for the butterfly craft, but for those who forget, T-shirts will be available for $4 at the program:
