The theme is camouflage at this week's Storytime with Live Animals at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. Maybe you'll see a turtle, or maybe it will be camouflaged.

This week's picks include a storytime with real, live animals at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, cocoa and snowball experiments at Crowder County Park in Apex, fun with anime and manga at the Southwest Regional Library in Durham, and duct tape crafts at the Northeast Regional Library in Raleigh.
