Parent Child LapSit Story Time
Parent/Child LapSits and last about 30-45 minutes. Parent or Caregivers need to bring the child and sit together to enjoy developmentally appropriate stories, songs (accompanied by banjo and ukulele); finger plays, flannel board presentations and a weekly visit from Puff the Magic Dragon. These programs are targeted at children 18 months to three years old. Information about parenting, literacy and other family related subjects will be shared periodically during the program.
Due to the developmental needs of this age group, it is preferred that siblings do not attend if at all possible. However, nobody will be turned away if bringing a sibling is the only way for a child to attend. Bringing toys is also discouraged. This is a “drop-in” program and no sign-up is required.
"Seussational” Story Hour
Celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss, “Read Across America Day” and the beginning of Read Aloud Month at the library with a special “Seussational” Story Hour in the Program Room for anyone 3 years and up who enjoys hearing the “nonsensical wisdom” of the wonderful doctor. Selections from the recently released “Horton and the Kwuggerbug and more Lost Stories“ will be featured as well as an old favorite or two. Some related “Seussy” songs, a “Seusscraft” and a light snack will add to the fun. Limit 30 kids. Register at Youth Desk, call 231-758-3112 or email childstaff@ Petoskey library.org.
