Music & Movement (Before or after story time): Skinamarinky Dinky Dink Song > Originally from a 20th century Broadway musical, this catchy, sweet song is all about love.
Grown-up Tip: Celebrating days like Father’s Day and Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to talk to your child about family structures and how each family is unique. Remind your child that these days can be meaningful days to celebrate anyone in their life that they love. A wonderful piece of literature that supports these ideas is the book, A Family is a Family is a Family, by: Sara O’Leary.
