A Young Girl Remembered, Anne Frank

 

 

June 12, 1942, Anne Frank turned 13 years old, and it was on that day that she received her diary which she named Kitty. Over the next two years, it became not only a reflection of her life, but of the world at that time. On August 1, 1944 she wrote her last entry.  Shortly thereafter, on August 4th, her family was discovered. She died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Feb. or March of 1945.

Note: The books listed below would be appropriate for mature readers.

Five Little Cookies Fingerplay

Storytime is a great place for children to learn basic concepts including math.  In a few weeks, I will be introducing  Five Little Cookies fingerplay to the children who attend my Family Storytime.  I've included the words below incase you wanted to learn it as well.

Dig into a Good Book - Dinosaurs Books

 

All kids love dinosaur books, and that is why I was so excited about this years theme, "Dig up a Good Book.”  Our Summer Reading Club starts on June 3rd. You can pre-register here. 

Children don't need to follow any type of reading list; rather, it's more important to let children choose items that like. This will help children develop a life long love of reading.  

Discover a Prehistoric World @ Your Library

It's time to pre-register online for the Texas Summer Reading program Starting this Friday, June 3rd, you can start reading and loging your books.

Children of all ages (infants - 12 years old) will have the opportunity to earn a free book for their personal collection! To earn your book you will need you read or listen to 10 books, or 500 pages or 500 minutes. I know that for a lot of you, those numbers can be somewhat intimidating.  So, I wanted to suggest a few things before you get started to help you achieve your goal.  

Summer Fun @ the Library

Do you know that the Atascocita Branch Library has free programs for families throughout the summer?
