Image result for mother goose on loose

 

Mother Goose on the Loose is based on an award-winning early-literacy program for children from birth to age 3 with their parents or caregivers. This program is geared specifically towards the young child and engages participants with one-on-one interaction between child and caregiver. 

Created by Mother Goose on the Loose Executive Director Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen, this innovative program is based on research which shows that children learn best through routine and repetition in a nurturing environment. Mother Goose on the Loose uses a variety of activities, such as rhymes, songs, puppets and instruments to foster speech development, motor coordination, self-confidence, and sensitivity to others.

This program is an excellent way to begin social interaction and a fantastic opportunity for parents to meet others.

Mother Goose on the Loose is based on an award-winning early-literacy program for children from birth to age 3 with their parents or caregivers. This program is geared specifically towards the young child and engages participants with one-on-one interaction between child and caregiver. 

Created by Mother Goose on the Loose Executive Director Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen, this innovative program is based on research which shows that children learn best through routine and repetition in a nurturing environment. Mother Goose on the Loose uses a variety of activities, such as rhymes, songs, puppets and instruments to foster speech development, motor coordination, self-confidence, and sensitivity to others.

This program is an excellent way to begin social interaction and a fantastic opportunity for parents to meet others.

Monday Matinee: Poms

Join us for our Monday Matinee and enjoy a brand-new film in the middle of the afternoon .  We'll be showing the "peppy" comedy Poms, starring Diane Keaton, Rhea Perlman & Pam Grier.  And did we mention that we'll have hot popcorn and cold drinks to share while you watch the film?!

This Month's Monday Matinee Feature: Poms

Poms

Cheerleading has always been seen as a teenagers' activity, one of the many provinces of the young. In an attempt to shatter these expectations, a group of women at a retirement community decide to form their own cheerleading squad. After all, who decided that there was such a thing as being too old to "bring it"? These ladies are out to prove that when it comes to doing what you love, your age should never stand in your way, and that the silver in your hair just might match the glitter in your pom-poms.

Author Meet & Greet: Julia Stewart

Stop by Moon Library as Julia Stewart discusses I Have a Question: A Tormented Journey to Language, the memoir her mother wrote about Julia's own childhood journey through a painful, traumatic illness that left her struggling physically and emotionally.  Books will be available for purchase and signing after Julia's talk.

I Have a Question: A Tormented Journey to Language by Carole Stewart

I Have a Question? is a poignant mother/daughter narrative that began as an exhaustive search to determine the origins and therefore the answers to multiple medical irregularities that entail the story of Julie, a remarkably determined young lady, whose only goal was to be accepted as the perceptive and intelligent person she indeed is. She wanted to be "Normal," like the three brothers who provided much of the early window of her world. Most of all, she wanted more than anything else to go to school. Her early development was noted for its steady and eager progress until a seemingly ordinary infection shortly before her second birthday turned the happy placid child into a screaming terror, unable to eat or sleep. Her weight dwindled to eighteen pounds whereupon she was prescribed a bottle-fed diet which included massive doses of Vitamin C, Niacin, B6, and B12--and large areas of Julie were covered with an angry burn like rash for six full months. The child became well then, as suddenly as she had become ill, though her growth would continue in the lower 10th percentile, and her language would now display only the repetition of the rote words learned in speech classes. Julie's experiences over the long and lonely years give important insight into the suppressed anger often seen in school yard violence, just as Julie's victories affirm the efforts of those who try harder to understand.
