Storytime today will be about siblings! Many of us have a brother or sister. These are fantastic stories many of our kiddos can relate to. 

Early literacy tip of the Week: Have your kiddos read to each other! If they are too young, pretending to read to each other and make up a story to go along with the illustrations can be great fun too!

Today's storytime will be all about color! We'll learn about Van Gogh and do some zen coloring!

Literacy Tip of the Week: Color of course! Coloring builds fine motor skills and can easily be combined with learning colors, letters, etc. Have a kiddo that doesn't like coloring? Try watercolor paint, sidewalk chalk or draw in shaving cream.
