Spring is coming! What better way to kick off spring than with sharing April’s National Poetry Month with your little ones? Children’s poetry can be silly and stimulating. It can help teach children to relate words and feelings more quickly. Studies show that when children participate in art, it engages their senses and wires the brain for successful learning. During a child’s early years, this is tremendously important as neural connections are being made at a rapid rate. Plus poetry is fun!
In honor of National Poetry Month, King County Libraries will be holding a series of FREE performances by The South Side Dance Force based on the work of local children’s poet Erik Korhel’s new book The Kid With The Red Juice Mustache and Other Nostalgic Companions with illustrations by Celia Marie Baker.
This will be a great show to watch, make sure to catch it when it comes to your local King Country Library.
