Participants will listen to a story read by a Children's Librarian, discuss it with each other afterwards, and then write a short book review. Books chosen for discussion will vary in genre and include fiction, non-fiction and biographies. No need to read the book ahead of time - just bring your listening ears and then get ready to talk it up!<br /><br />This discussion will help participants build<strong> </strong>literacy skills, as well as their vocabulary and writing skills.<br /><br />Program Date: <a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=g1003992~S10">September 20, 2:00 PM</a> http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/talk-it-read-write#comments Listeners Kids Programs Canton Connections Connections Mon, 25 Aug 2014 08:00:00 +0000 Marianne 75206 at http://www.cantonpl.org Baby Storytime http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/baby-storytime-9 <span style="color:#0c0c0c;line-height:19.62px;font-family:Lato, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img width="158" height="134" class="image image-preview" alt="" src="https://www.cantonpl.org/sites/default/files/images/BabyPlaid.jpg" style="float:right;" />Designed for babies up to 18 months old with a caregiver, Baby Storytime features simple stories, songs, </span><a style="line-height:19.62px;font-family:Lato, sans-serif;font-size:14px;" href="https://www.cantonpl.org/youth/parents/poems/fingerplays/s-z">fingerplays</a>, and lots of fun!<span style="color:#0c0c0c;line-height:19.62px;font-family:Lato, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> Our Baby Storytime sessions are held in the Purple Room.</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#0c0c0c;line-height:19.62px;font-family:Lato, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Registration begins August 25.</span><br /><span style="color:#0c0c0c;line-height:19.62px;font-family:Lato, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Session begins </span><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=g1003993~S10">Tuesday, September 16, 10:00 AM</a> http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/baby-storytime-9#comments Babies Kids Parents Programs Canton Connections Connections Mon, 25 Aug 2014 08:00:00 +0000 Marianne 75304 at http://www.cantonpl.org Michigan Fiction For Kids http://www.cantonpl.org/blog/post/michigan-fiction-kids <p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1543832"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1543832.jpg" /></span>The mighty Miss Malone</a> by Christopher Paul Curtis</p> <br /><div><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1361889"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1361889.jpg" /></span>Willow Run</a> by Patricia Reilly Giff</p> </div><br /><div><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1473259"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1473259.jpg" /></span>The locked garden</a> by Gloria Whelan</p> </div><br /><div><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1443226"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1443226.jpg" /></span>No cream puffs</a> by Karen Day</p> </div><br /><div><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1510534"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1510534.jpg" /></span>The Danger Box</a> by Blue Balliett</p> </div><br /><div><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1403956"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1403956.jpg" /></span>Mr. Chickee's messy mission</a> by Christopher Paul Curtis</p> </div><br /><div><p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1245843"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1245843.jpg" /></span>The wanigan: a life on the river</a> by Gloria Whelan ;
