I Love My Library! Blog Series: Sno-Isle Libraries Rock!

Every fall Sno-Isle Libraries host their "Read and Rock"concerts series for children under five and their caregivers. This is a great example of what libraries provide that you won't find anyplace else- free concerts for young children, mixed with important information delivered in a fun way, and tons of books to take home afterwards- also free! The library is such a welcoming and comfortable setting for young children, and a great place for them to practice socializing and building social skills- not to mention LIVE music perfect for dancing and wiggling! Does it get any better? But don't worry if you don't live in the area, the Sno-Isle Library website is also one of the best resources for learning how to help your children get ready to read. With beautifully produced short videos that explain all about early literacy, to short colorful book lists and ideas for activities to do with your child. Great job, Sno-Isle! And the best part is, you only need an Internet connection to use and enjoy these resources. So click on the link NOW,
 and go see for yourself! Then, if you live in the Seattle area, come see me at one of my concerts during the next few weeks.
