Calendar Event Photo

It's October - time to get ready for HALLOWEEN! Our theme for the second week of October is Birds and Frogs!

Based on the "Mother Goose on the Loose" program, Toddler Time is a fun-filled thirty-minute interactive program that uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process of babies and toddlers. It is a proven method for planning and presenting programs that focus on the whole child.

Join us for this special program most Monday and Friday mornings at 10:30 AM in the library auditorium. Toddler Time is held in the auditorium on the lower level of the Library (view Library map). This fall, Toddler Time will also be broadcast online, live, on Mondays at 10:30 am (see below for details).

Today's Toddler Time: October Birds & Frogs 

book coverToday's Book: On a Windy Night by Nancy Raines Day; illustrated by George Bates.
Book Synopsis: On a windy Halloween night, as a little boy makes his way home after trick-or-treating, he hears a voice: "Cracklety-clack, bones in a sack. They could be yours—if you look back." As his heart flip-flops with fear, the boy dashes through woods and fields that seem full of haunting shapes—owls, ghosts, skeletons, and more.

The detailed illustrations are packed with visual tricks for children to discover. Are those skeletons or cornstalks? Ghostly hands or tree branches? The playful tone of the text makes this a perfect, not-too-scary read-aloud, with an enjoyable surprise ending.

"Mother Goose on the Loose"

The "Mother Goose on the Loose" program helps children develop skills for success in a classroom. It helps children acquire a rich vocabulary and strengthens foundational reading skills. MGOL gives children opportunities to practice turn-taking, direction following, paying attention and showing appreciation to others. The age-appropriate listening, moving, and singing that takes place in MGOL exercises fine and gross motor skills, fosters speech development, keeps children’s interest for an extended period of time, gives children opportunities to make scientific observations regarding cause and effect, and provides a joyful introduction to the world of books and reading.
