Halloween in the library!

Last Tuesday the UHMC Head Start children had a great storytime in our library!  Dorothy Tolliver and Betsy Knight read stories and did fun fingerplays with the children.  All of this contributes to building children's language.  When they have lots to talk about and think about, they want to communicate it, and the motivation to read and write is much stronger.  The children's ages range from just turned 3 to almost 5, and the younger ones have a much shorter attention span, but Dorothy and Betsy kept it active and engaging so that even our youngest stayed engaged.
