Here's the description of the P.L.A.Y. Day from the Shorewood Public Library website: "Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and children (infants through kindergartners) are invited to join us for a day of P.L.A.Y. - Play, Literacy & Learning Activities for You & Your Young Children. Discover the many ways children learn through play. Make some fun and easy learning toys. Learn about healthy foods kids will love. The Shorewood Library is partnering with the North Shore Health Department, Outpost Natural Foods, and others to help parents and caregivers make the most of those early years."
Not only did I get some more experience working with children in a library setting, I also got to brush up on my nonverbal communication skills. Shorewood Library serves a pretty diverse population, and I interacted with many parents and children who spoke little or no English. It's amazing to see just how much you can communicate with others based on facial expressions and gestures alone!
