"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Rachel Coleman is coming to Logan!

Rachel Coleman is the co-creator of Signing Time, which is a collection of videos that teach ASL vocabulary to children.  It's very musical and fun.  I'm sure you have seen some of the video's in your local library.  As part of the Unlocking Children's Potential Conference at Utah State University she will be doing a Children's Concert.  The concert is from 3-4 pm in the Eccles Conference Center.  Tickets are $5 per seat.  As part of the conference they will be having several presentations and a keynote speaker discussing children.  These classes are intended to help parents, educators, child care providers, and students.  The conference price is $25 and you can register and purchase tickets for the concert by calling 797-0423.

The Bookmobile

Did you know there is probably a bookmobile stop close to you?  What a fun thing for kids to look forward to. The summer is a great time to start going to the bookmobile.  They have a fun summer reading program.

Our bookmobile stop is less then half a block from our house and it comes every Monday at 2:00-2:45 pm.  Shawn is a great librarian who is friendly to the kids and very helpful in getting the books you want.  If you don't find the book you need on the book mobile he is more then willing to bring it with him for the next week.  For more information and schedules click here.  If you need help finding your closest bookmobile stop let me know and I can help.
