The Canfield library hosted its weekly Baby Brilliant: Tales and Talk for 2s and 3s, with Romie Policy, Youth Services, leading the program Sept. 12. With the theme ‘Days of the Week,’ Policy featured books and songs which focused on the subject.
“Our theme today is ‘Days of the Week.’ Every day has a name, just like you have a name,” Policy said.
Policy started the story time with the book, “Lola at the Library.” While reading the book, she asked the children to join her in singing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.”
With shakers in hand, the children then listened to “Loopty Loo,” a song with days of the week lyrics, and used hand movements to ‘dance’ to the music. Next, Policy read a rhyme which incorporated the days of the week.
Policy continued the theme with the book “Every Friday.” She then played a song “Today is Monday” and had the children follow along by showing them pictures from the Eric Carle book of the same name.
Policy then read the book, ‘Saturday’ to the children.
“Saturday is a fun day when a lot of people don’t have to go to work and get to do fun things with their family,” Policy said.
To end the story time, Policy read the children “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” When Policy was finished, she invited the children and their parents to participate in a craft.
“We have a craft set up on the tables where you can make your own calendar for this month. You can decorate it any way you like. And all the story times for September are already marked on the calendar, so you will know when you can come back and see us again,” Policy said.
