We hope you were able to attend our special program featuring renowned author and physical activity specialist, Rae Pica, on October 14. Whether or not you were there, now it's time to put her suggestions into play. Literally!

Rae Pica shared with us how parents, families, teachers, caregivers and childcare providers can help our kids be ready to read by understanding the relationship between physical activity and the brain, the value of play, and how to use movement, play and active learning to nurture a child’s ability to learn to read and think.

To keep things moving, we’re hosting Movin' & Groovin' Fests in the coming weeks. Learn how to make fun movement/play objects from everyday materials. It's a wonderful way to help you baby, toddler and preschool get ready to read. 

Bring the kids and join the fun at one of our Movin' & Groovin' Fests. You'll realize why Rae Pica believes, that children "...don't exist only from the neck up. They are thinking, feeling, moving human beings who learn through all their senses."

Unless otherwise noted, Fests are held from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Saturday, October 17: Golden and Lakewood

Saturday, October 24: Arvada and Evergreen

Saturday, November 7: Edgewater (2-4 p.m.), Standley Lake, Columbine

Saturday, November 14: Belmar, Conifer, Wheat Ridge

Everybody loves a tea party! We invite kids who are five and older to bring their favorite grownup to an afternoon tea at the Wheat Ridge Library.

You don’t have to be royalty to enjoy a good tea party. Tea parties can be a fun way to introduce your children to table etiquette. Here are a few tea party “rules” I found in some of our children’s books.

  1. Always try to be clean and neat.
  2. Try to be fancy. A little dress up doesn’t hurt anyone.
  3. Try to eat daintily.
  4. Manners matter.

Whether you’re like Fancy Nancy or more like Tea Rex, tea parties can be a lot of fun. And, here’s a few reading suggestions for you to check out before, or after, your tea party.

4 p.m. Thursday, September 10
Wheat Ridge

Registration is required and is now open. Register.
