Celebrate spring with storytimes at the Knoxville Library this month.
Family Storytimes, for children ages 2-5 with an adult begin on Thursday, April 11 at 2 p.m. These 30 – 40 minute programs are based on early learning standards for children and include books, songs, rhymes and activities aimed at enriching the literacy experience. Although the programs are geared toward toddlers and preschoolers, all are welcome. The programs continue weekly through May 23.
The One Book, Every Young Child Celebration will be held on Saturday, April 13 at 11:30 a.m. Activities will focus on the book, The Bus for Us by Suzanne Bloom.
In the story, we meet Tess, who is eagerly awaiting the bus on her first day of school. Tess learns the names of different vehicles from her older friend, Gus. The Bus for Us is a perfect story for children preparing to go to preschool or kindergarten next fall, or any child fascinated by transportation vehicles.
After reading the book, there will be activities involving music, art and movement which reinforce the meaning of the story. This program is for children ages 2-6, accompanied by an adult. A free copy of the book may be available for each family in attendance, but supplies are limited.
