At the Children’s Library we love to answer questions. The tougher the nut, the more fun we have trying to crack it. Recently, we had a very specific request from a customer that really challenged our grey cells.
Avast ye landlubbers! Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19) is approaching as fast a clipper ship on a clear day. Want to teach your kids some pirate lingo, but afraid your inner pirate is as rusty as an old cutlass? Brush up with one of these books.
Here at the Central Children's Library we're getting into the spirit of the day by reading some pirate books (see below). And some of us are even planning to dress, as well as talk, like pirates! So stop by the Children's Library on Friday and give us your best, "Arrrrgh!"
Here at the Children's Library we know storytime wouldn't be the same without music!
Why is music an important part of storytime? Singing, one of the Every Child Ready to Read early literacy practices, helps kids learn new words and letter sounds as they are stretched out to fit the rhythm of the song. Music without words is also beneficial because it helps children learn about rhythm and patterns. Finally, music is fun! The more kids associate having fun with reading, the more they'll want to read.
