Entries for ' Children and teen literature'

Starting with Rosh Hashanah and looking at stories, poems and activities to use with the youngest library users, we share ideas for good books and follow-up activities that can be used in the library or classroom through the year. Library lessons introduce young children to the library, the concept of borrowing and returning, book care, parts of a book, and good listening skills. Preschool skills such as color and shape recognition, identifying sounds, counting and alphabet will also be integrated int o the storytimes.
