Songs and Ideas for the Littlest of Library Littles

Allow me to introduce you to some superstars of the children’s library world: Dana and Lindsey of Jbrary! If you click into their youtube playlists, they have many songs that help children form difficult sounds, learn sign language, and just “get the wiggles out!”

Here’s the link:

If you, as a parent, are looking for ways to entertain your child, click into the menu for Programs. There you will find ideas for both Baby and Toddler Storytimes. They share how to use puppets and felt stories with kids, as well as sharing some finger plays (often a counting game using a song or rhyme), songs/dances, books that work well  for a felt story (you could even cut and create the pieces together), and egg  shakers (another thing you could make together)! Or, if you want to create a storytime for your Littles, there’s even a place that teaches you how in that list.

I can’t tell you how much I love these ladies with their sunny attitudes and fabulous resources. Hopefully this helps you, too! If nothing else, the songs on their YouTube channel are really fun for kids!!

Have fun! And happy Saturday!

Friday Writing Prompt

Friday writing prompt: “Eight-year-old Jade’s wind-tossed hair whipped around her face as she watched the waves crash to shore.”

How to play: Use the above as the opening line in the story. We’d like each person to comment a line in the story (keep it family friendly, please!) so that each person’s comment builds on the story. So, first comment is the second line in the story. Second comment is the third line, and so on. This should take the story down some interesting roads!

If you’d rather write a whole story or poem yourself, feel free to do that too! We’d love to see it and hope you’ll share!

Alright everyone! Let’s see what’s happening with Jade! And…GO!!!
