Toe tapping tales for the toddlers
Musical story time might just inspire a little musician in your family too!
What do children enjoy more than regular story time? Musical Story Time sessions at Logan Hyperdome Library. The next installment will take place on Friday the 2nd of December from 10am to 11am. It's free to attend and enjoy musical stories, rhymes and activities designed for children of preschool age and toddlers.
Musical Story Time can help your child develop literacy and social skills all while having fun. Organisers say, "Sessions aim to encourage reading, learning and the enjoyment of books in a group environment."
In the publication, Music and Learning by Chris Brewer, the author says music helps us learn in a number of ways. It establishes a positive learning state, builds a sense of anticipation, energises learning activities and even changes brainwave states. Music in learning environments can also increase retention, enhance imagination and relieve tension, along with many other benefits.
So if you have children aged 3-5 years, why not treat them to an enjoyable way to learn at Musical Story Time? If you'd like to know more, give the library a call on 3412 4120 during their opening hours (Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9 am - 5 pm; Tuesday and Thursday 9 am - 8 pm; Saturday 9 am - 4 pm).
