The Rusk County Children’s Council, the group that brings the Dr. Seuss birthday party to the library in March, invites you and your young child to the annual sing-a-long.
Have you ever wondered what your little one was singing? You will receive a songbook with the words of the songs so that you can sing them again at home.
Would you like your little one to learn a little Spanish? Mario Friedel, our elementary school principal and musician will teach us a few simple songs in Spanish.
Preschool teachers and child care providers, Lucy Taylor, Lisa Bucher, Karlene Gordon and others will lead their favorite songs for us. With the toads coming out of hibernation, I will lead Croak, Croak, A Toads Environmental Song.
Songs and fingerplays are a great tool in helping our children learn language and learn to read. The same side of the brain responsible for language is also the side of the brain that lights up on brain imaging scans when we are listening or participating in music. We hope you come, learn something new, and have a great time with us!
