The Poland library hosted a Baby Brilliant: Bonding with babies and books event Dec. 26. With rough weather on the horizon and the after-holiday feel in the air, only one family attended the event, but that was all it took to create a fun environment for love, laughter and learning.

Librarian Amanda Kollar began the event with the popular children’s rhyme “The More We Get Together.” After the rhyme, Kollar began an activity in which she showed pictured of animals and said their names. Each animal was repeated to encourage the information to stick.

Kollar read a book called “Hide and Seek, Little Tiger” and then sang a song about three little jellyfish in which, one-by-one, the jellyfish fell off a rock they were sitting on and climbed back on again. This song encourages early counting skills in young children. Kollar ended the program by singing “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

“This is just such a great program for the community,” said Michael Romeo, who, along with his wife and brother, brought his son, Michael Jr., to the event despite the threat of snow. “If you can get two grown men involved in a program like this, imagine what it’s like for the kids. This is a really great thing for children.”
