Baby Faves: Animal Sounds

Books to share with babies & toddlers, from birth through age two.

It's not an accident that babies and toddlers seem drawn to animal noises -- besides being fun to make, these sounds are easier for little ones to imitate than many words. Thanks to this accessibility, animal noises are a great tool for building phonological awareness in even the tiniest people.

Fiction for Ages 8 to 12

At the Southeast Library, our Kids’ Book Club meets once a month to discuss a book, enjoy snacks, and do an interactive activity (ages 8 to 12, last Wednesday, 4:00 p.m. – check out our calendar!). As much fun as the meetings are, my favorite part comes at the end: the participating kids vote on which book they will read and discuss the following month.

S.T.E.A.M. Team Makes a Movie

On Monday, February 29th Southeast Library held our first S.T.E.A.M. Team meeting for kids ages 6-12. Participants learned about making a movie! Together, they wrote, produced, shot, acted in, and edited a movie trailer using iMovie. The result was It Happened in the Library. Make sure to watch our behind-the-scenes trailer about making It Happened in the Library called S.T.E.A.M. Team: Movie Time.
