This week's storytime is filled with songs and movement. 

Rhyming and music are great ways to focus the mind on the sounds being perceived and promote learning with an engaging platform. Music has always been a way for children to remember stories and learn about the world around them. Using music as a stimulus can affect one's emotions and make information easier to remember. This is an important tool for early literacy skills. 

There are fabulous new books being published that have music, songs and learning tips that come with the book! Clintonville Library's children picture books are organized into "families" by topic. We have a entire section for picture books with songs and rhymes! Stop by and check them out!

Check out this website for great songs that promote literacy!
