It’s the dog days of summer and we are celebrating with Animal August in this month’s Peek-A- Box!

In this month’s box you will find a dog chip/bag clip, a farm animal mini notepad, a mini hummingbird feeder, a silicone animal paw print ice cube tray, and snacks – animal crackers and Swedish fish.  And the books for Animal August all have an animal in the title.

Thanks for reading with the Iowa Library for the Blind and Print Disabled!
