Math Storytime

Children's books provide a fun and interesting way to reinforce basic concepts. In this week's Family Storytime (Atascocita Branch) we had fun with math.  I realized that the statement, "fun with math," may seem like an oxymoron to those of you who do not like math. However, it has been my experience, that children actually enjoy math when they experience it in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

All Ages Welcome @ Family Storytime

Children of all ages are invited to attend Family Storytime.

Coming Clean

My husband, recently told me that I buy cleaning products like most women buy shoes. At first, I denied it. Then, I took a closer look at my cleaning cabinet, and  I realized that it was stuffed with items I don’t even like.

Art Currently on Display

Student art work from Fall Creek and Eagle Springs elementary schools is currently on display in the Children's Department. 

Creative Corner

Everyone knows that art activities are fun.  Did you know that they also help build skills such as; creative thinking, spatial awareness, problem solving? You can extend your child's learning experience by reading books about art, and visiting the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.  MFAH, is a family friendly environment that encourages both adults and children to explore and discover. They even provide weekly activities and storytimes!
