Crafting with Paper
Creating 3-D paper sculptures is a great way to practice all the ways you can manipulate paper through folding, crumpling, cutting, rolling and punching. Get those fingers moving to support fine motor skills while playing!
And the Winners Are.....
Looking for picture books that support early literacy? Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy recently announced the 2016 CLEL Bell Award winners. The five winning books consist of one title in each of five categories. Each category represents an early literacy practice: Reading, Writing, Singing, Talking and Playing. Research has shown that engaging children in these practices builds language skills and prepares children to become successful readers.
Kent District Library is pleased to host an evening with award-winning children's book author and illustrator Floyd Cooper to discuss the role of racial diversity in children's picture books.
Cooper will present "Windows and Mirrors: Diversity in Children's Literature" at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, April 26 at the Wyoming Branch.
