Babies are masters of languages. Dr. Patricia Kuhl calls babies “citizens of the world,” because they can hear every sound in every language. This ability decreases as children get older and drops significantly when children reach puberty. The best time to learn language is before age 7. For more information, watch Dr. Kuhl speak about babies, brain development, and language learning.

Fall is right around the corner and many families are sending a kindergartner off to school for the first time.  Celebrate this important milestone with a trip to the library where your budding student can get his or her first library card!  Join us for the Kindergarten Party on Saturday, October 6 anytime between 1:00 and 3:00.  Do a scavenger hunt, have a snack, make a craft and enjoy a story.  Kindergartners will receive a free library card pouch.  Bring the whole family for fun and festivities!

Here’s an app that will keep your child entertained, and it’s free! Check out this link to Talking Tom Cat brought to you by iTunes! He responds to touch and repeats everything your child says in a funny voice. Besides being hilarious, this app has educational benefits as well, especially for children with special needs. If your child is reluctant to talk, this app can help develop language skills by encouraging your child to speak more.
