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.
What could be better than 80 families visiting the library on a Saturday afternoon? 80 families visiting the library to sing and play together!
Mountain States Toyota helped the Denver Public Library bring Jim Gill, children's musician, author, and child development specialist, to the Central Library on Saturday, September 7th to provide a fantastic and fun concert for families with young children.
