Supporting the Socioemotional Development of Young Children

Your Place to Belong: A Susan Orlean, Author of the Year program

In January, we are spotlighting Susan Orlean’s picture book Lazy Little Loafers which is an illustrated lament from the viewpoint of a disgruntled older sibling who wonders, “Why don’t babies work?”

We know that babies are, in fact, working cognitively all the time, absorbing everything their little eyes can see, and that some of the most important developmental years happen early. It’s no secret that we are currently living through unprecedented times, and have had to find new ways to engage the young children in our lives.

Dr. Hannah Mudrick, Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Penn State Harrisburg, will help participants navigate social and emotional development of young children during the ongoing pandemic. She will discuss the importance of caring relationships and engagement with children, among other topics. There will also be opportunities for discussion and Q & A with Dr. Mudrick.

60 minutes. For ages 16+. Registration is required. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link, password, and further instructions. 

    Location: The Library at Your Place
