Westborough – Families attended a fun and educational program presented Feb. 19 at Tatnuck Bookseller by Dave Marchetti of Animal Experiences. Afterward, children of all ages got the chance to handle many live animals including frogs, snakes, turtles, a chinchilla, a hedgehog, a lizard and a rabbit. Marchetti is the author of three books: “Nestle's Big Adventure,” “The Frog with Slippery Fingers” and “Steve the Stickleback.”
