The Insiders: Animals don’t live in penthouse condos, but your children can learn where they actually do live

Dogs are among the only animals lucky enough to have their own houses, assuming that dog houses are still actually a thing. Of course, they get to live in your house, and usually end up running the place – unless there’s a cat on the premises. Everyone knows the cat is always the boss.

Most other animals live in less-structured homes, in that they aren’t actually structures (outside of those riverside condos built by the most industrious of woodland creatures ). So where do other animals live? We’re glad you asked, mostly because we weren’t entirely sure where we were going with all of this. Where you should go, though – especially if you have knowledge-craving young children – is the Concord Public Library, so you can take part in their “Who Lives Where” activity. The program allows children to stop in whenever the library is open and learn about where animals make their homes. It’s an interactive adventure featuring pictures of 10 animals and pictures of different homes the critters could live in that children can match up on a magnetic board. Animals include beavers and frogs and polar bears, and there is a fact sheet featuring tidbits about each animal to help guide the learning experience.

Sounds fun and educational, which makes it two things that Keeping Up With The Kardashians isn’t. So what are you waiting for? Head to the library.

 Tonight, if you’re hungry for some music, or just kind of hungry, stop by Hermanos to hear Mike Stockbridge play some live music starting at 6:30 p.m.
