The Art of A B C Books

 

 

 

 

 

 

Concept books are not just for little kids for many reasons, but one of which is that many abc books have been created by some of the most talented photographers, artist and designers in the world. I chose the items below because each book has great appeal with children and they are visually creative. 

Spring into Health

You can support your child's physical, emotional  and mental health by the food and lifestyle choices that your family makes. Here are some great resources which will support you as a parent, and hopefully make your job a little easier.

A Hoot and Holler For Owl Books

This week, I wanted to share a few of my favorite owl books with you.  No specific reason really other than the fact that I adore owls.  I hope that you enjoy the stories and illustrations of these delightful picture books. 

To extend your reading experience, you will find project ideas at the end of this blog. I drew the image for my blog and I thought that you might have fun making one too. The information provided describes how to draw an owl.

Basic Math Concepts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many children's songs and fingerplays help reinforce basic math concepts. Whenever possible, I incorporate objects that the children can count or other  visual images such as graphs. This not only makes the information easier for children to understand but also allows me to introduce vocabulary. 

At home, parents can help their children by creating activities and games to talk about math. Take children on a nature walk and allowing them to collect items such as, small stones, sea shells or leaves.

Audio Books Playlist For Children

Many of you will soon be celebrating Spring Break. So, I wanted to highlight audio books for young children. The items that I have chosen not only include the picture book, but they also include a musical CD version. I encourage you to try these out during your next car trip.

The Bluebonnets Have Arrived!

To say that the Texas Bluebonnet books are popular would truly be an understatement.  So, I wanted to make sure everyone is aware that the 2012 - 2013 Bluebonnet Books have arrived at all HCPL locations. Happy reading!

Fun With Math

Fingerplays  and songs are a great way to help children learn basic math concepts.  Here is one that I will be using in my storytime during the Spring season.

Fabulous Fun With Food

 

 

The books this week take an unexpected spin and sometimes hilarious twist on traditional tales.
