Norah insisted on touching every animal in the exhibit, so that meant she had to wait in line twice to earn more time at the tanks. But she was willing to wait patiently, so I was willing to let her. I spent the time trying to entertain Avril and find library books.
I took Norah to a traveling touch tank exhibit at our local library. We just got back from a vacation where we went to the beach and saw many of these animals in their natural settings, but Norah was really excited about the idea of having crabs coming to where she lived or maybe she was excited with the idea of having a calm professional help her learn to touch one safely, since I am scared to death of their claws and still freak out when crabs move around on the sand near my feet.
