Jesse the Reptile Guy

Reptile Explorers

Laugh and learn with Jesse Rothacker and his merry band of castaway critters. You’ll meet snakes, lizards, turtles, and crocs from around the world, and they’ll all be in one place – at your local library – so you won’t have to cross the seven seas! Make sure to pick up a free reptile bookmark, and checkout some reptile books from the library the day of the show!
