Knowing When To Say Please And Thank You, Is A Good Start, But It's Not Everything Children Need To Know.

It's important that children have the opportunity to learn life skill;. so this week we are taking a closer look at manners. The books I've highlighted this week will be a fun way for parents to discuss this important topic with their children.

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.

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.
