Par­ent and kids con­nect at li­braries

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY KIDS -

CHIL­DREN and their par­ents flocked to the Beach Li­brary in Cannonvale last Fri­day morn­ing for the al­ways pop­u­lar weekly story time.

Story time is a 30 minute pro­gram of sto­ries, danc­ing, songs and a sim­ple craft ac­tiv­ity for chil­dren aged 3-5 years and runs ev­ery Fri­day from 10.30am at the Beach Li­brary and 10.30am ev­ery Tues­day morn­ing at the Proser­pine Li­brary.

Young fam­i­lies are able to net­work and meet other par­ents and story time is a great way for chil­dren to build on their so­cial and fine mo­tor skills.

The li­braries also of­fer rhythm and rhyme work­shops, aimed at younger chil­dren aged be­tween 0-2 years.

Th­ese 20-30 minute ses­sions were pro­vided for par­ents and chil­dren to en­joy to­gether and in­volved sim­ple sto­ries, songs and rhymes to pro­vide a baby’s first in­tro­duc­tion to the world of lan­guage. The ses­sions run at the Beach Li­brary ev­ery Mon­day morn­ing from 10.30am and the sec­ond Fri­day of ev­ery month in Proser­pine.

FAM­ILY FUN: Jens Mueller and son Liam headed along to the story time and craft at the Beach Li­brary last Fri­day morn­ing.
