In this second episode of CPL online storytimes, Miss Kristen and Miss Ruth tell stories and sing songs all about pigs.
But did you know that the origin of Valentine's Day, or Saint Valentine's Day, comes from the life and death of a Christian martyr? According to author Martha Zimmerman, the date traditionally celebrated as St. Valentine's Day finds it origin in the Roman festival of romance called Lupercalia, when the gods Juno and Pan were honored. It was a fertility festival or a lover's holiday looking forward to the return of Spring. In the fifth century, in an attempt to abolish the pagan festival, Pope Gelasius changed Lupercalia and its February 15 date to February 14 and called it Saint Valentine's Day. Even though the names and the date were changed, the emphasis continued to be on love.
Miss Kristen and Miss Ruth tell stories and sing songs related to the number 3. Enjoy CPL storytime favorites like the magic box, Miss Ruth's guitar, Miss Kristen telling "The Three Bears," and Miss Ruth saying goodbye to all our friends.
Special thanks to the young patrons of Canton Public Library for clapping, stomping, and playing peekaboo in the video!
Our board book collection has moved. If you're searching for a sturdy book just right for your exploring young child, look no further. The board books now live in our new Baby Nook!
Our Baby Storytime does require registration and is suitable for babies up to 18 months. Please, no siblings, so that you may devote your full attention to your baby.
If you're looking for something silly and short to share with your little one, take a look at the Sandra Boynton items in our collection. The board books are quick little reads: some have silly themes like belly buttons and others are fun stories about animals. If you're looking for children's music that won't drive you crazy, Philadelphia Chickens is my favorite. The songs aren't obnoxious, but they are catchy enough that you'll remember them later if you need to entertain your baby on the go.
