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.

Our good friend Bear is back, and this time he has a loose tooth. His friends try to help pull the tooth out, but their tricks don't work. Finally, Bear is able to wiggle the tooth out all on his own.  As Bear sleeps that night, a fluttering tooth fairy leaves him a plate of blueberries. Pair this new one with Bear’s other charming adventures.

Did you know the library offers online Disney books? Visit Disney Digital Books in OverDrive (our new eLibrary collection). Locate the link at the left of the page under Collections.  You’ll find titles like Toy Story 3 and Finding Nemo.  Once you’ve checked an item out, simply launch the story. As you hover over each word, a voice will read it aloud. This is a wonderful way for kids to revisit their favorites again and again.  Need someone to walk you through these steps? Call the Kids’ World Desk at 847-506-2620.
