The students of Neshaminy Montessori have recently visited the Lower Southampton library. Miss Brittany, the new children's librarian, read the children some stories about poetry. The children listened for rhyming words and sang some songs too! They were able to look around the library, meet the hermit crabs at the reference desk, and play in the children's area. Each child was given a library card form in order to apply for their very own library card!
The main story, Daniel Finds a Poem is part of a program called One Book, Every Young Child. Now in its 12th year, the program highlights the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers and the significance of reading early and often to children, as well as engaging them in conversation and other activities around books. The students of Neshaminy Montessori have been participating in this program with the Lower Southampton Library since 2007!
